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 by logging onto the ‘myIR’ platform on the IRD website. You can upload them throughout the year or do it 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 and you can upload this now!

Don’t forget, if you forgot to claim previously, you can still make up for that and claim for the previous four years.

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

You can also 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!
