Arizona Program Overview

We’re sorry, we’re unable to provide assistance at this time. Keep reading to learn more about eligibility requirements and deadlines for property tax refunds and credits in your state. You can find more resources here.

In Arizona, homeowners and renters can apply for the Property Tax Refund Credit (140PTC), a refundable income tax credit for property taxes paid on Arizona property that is either owned by or rented by the resident. Taxpayers do not have to own the home for which they are claiming the 140PTC credit. Residents of nursing homes in Arizona may also be eligible.

Homeowners and renters may eligible if:
  • You were a resident of Arizona for the whole year (January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021)
  • You were either 65 or older by December 31, 2021, or if you were under age 65, you were receiving Title 16 Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments during 2020 (you must meet only one of these requirements)
  • Your total household income was less than $3,751 if you lived alone, or less than $5,501 if others lived with you.
  • You paid property taxes or rent on your main home in Arizona during 2021. You may also have paid both property taxes and rent for the whole year of 2021. If you only paid rent during 2021, you must have rented for the whole year.
  • “Homeowner” includes a shareholder of a cooperative corporation where the unit was the main home in Arizona during 2021. A member of a condominium association for whom the unit was the main home during 2021 is also considered a homeowner.
