Claim tax credits for donations
Te kerēme tāwere tāke mō ngā takoha
Did you know you can claim one third back of any money you donate to a New Zealand charity?
For example if you donate $100, you can claim back $33.33.
This is called a Donation Tax Credit and IRD just made it easier to claim them. You can now upload your receipts online throughout the year and you can make your claim online too (paper forms are still an option too).
At the end of the tax year, IRD will calculate how much you are owed and you will receive the credit in your account within 3 weeks. It’s that easy!
If you’re part of Seeds of Support, our regular giving programme with Rotorua Community Hospice, we’ll send you a receipt at the end of the tax year for the full amount you’ve donated in the year and you can use this to make your claim.
If you’ve made a one-off donation, you would have received a receipt via email or post and you can upload this now! It saves you the hassle of trying to find all the receipts at the end of the finical year.
Don’t forget, if you forgot to claim previously, you can still make up for that and claim now!
