The Mission of the Arizona Psychological Association is to support its  members, advance the profession, preserve its integrity, promote health, and  advocate in the public interest. The Arizona Psychological Association is a  nonprofit organization known to the IRS as a 501(c)(6).  Contributions to  section 501(c)(6) organizations are not deductible as charitable contributions  on the donor’s federal income tax return, but are typically taken as business expense deductions if ordi­nary and necessary in the conduct of the taxpayer’s business.  If you are a retired psychologist, we encourage you to make a tax-  deducible donation to the Arizona Psychological Foundation since only  business-expenses may be tax deductible to AzPA.
