Tax Credit Information

The Canadian Government encourages charitable giving by providing a tax credit for charitable gifts to registered charities. Atira is registered with the Canada Revenue agency, to view Atira’s registration page please visit http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/charities/ . Tax credits may vary depending on the province you live in. Either spouse can claim the tax credit, regardless of who’s names the donation receipt is in. Unclaimed charitable donations can be carried forward for up to five years.

The first $200 of a donation is eligible for a 20.06% tax credit, everything after the first $200 is eligible for a 43.7% tax credit.  This applies to all donations made to registered charities in Canada, for example:

Donation to Atira - $300

Donation to ABC charity - $300

Donation to LMN charity - $300

Donation to XYZ Charity - $100

Total gifts made to registered charities in Canada is $1000. Your tax calculation would be as follows:
