Claim tax credits for donations

Te kerēme tāwere tāke mō ngā takoha

Did you know you can claim back one third 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 have made it easier to claim them. You can upload your receipts online by logging onto the ‘myIR’ platform on the IRD website. Receipts can be uploaded throughout the year or all at once at the end of the financial year on March 31st.

At the end of the tax year, IRD will calculate how much you are owed and you will receive the credit in your account. 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. Remember you can claim donations for the previous four years.

For more information: https://www.ird.govt.nz/tasks/claim-tax-credits-for-donations

If you would prefer not to do your tax return online, you can submit all your receipts after the tax year ends on 31 March by completing a ‘Tax credit claim form – IR526‘ and posting this form along with your receipts to Inland Revenue.

We would love if you would continue the cycle of giving by donating your tax credit back to Rotorua Hospice. Once you’ve received the credit, simply donate and make your gift go even further!

This is Barbara's story

Don’t ever be frightened to ring Hospice and get support. They are wonderful. It’s not necessarily the end – they can help. The thing is when you’re a patient or a friend of a patient you don’t know how to deal with it. They do. That’s why I would do anything for Hospice.
