Make the Most Out of Your Charitable Tax Credits!
Support your favourite cause and you can receive as much as 53% back through charity tax deductions. See the difference that charitable tax credits make when you donate to your favourite charity, and claim your charitable donation receipts.
Not only is giving to charity a great way to make a difference to your favourite cause, but when you claim your charitable tax credits you can also take advantage of federal and provincial government tax incentives. Here are just some of the ways that giving charitably might pay off for you!
By donating to your favourite charity, you may receive as much as 53% of the amount you donated back at tax-time. Calculate how much you can claim with our Charitable Tax Credit calculator below.
Securities are the most efficient way to give charitably. When you donate publicly traded securities (stocks, mutual funds, bonds, etc.) directly to your favourite charity, you can eliminate the capital gains tax as these securities are sold, and still receive a tax receipt for the fair market value on the date the security is received by our broker. Plus, your charity also gets the full value of the securities.
You do not have to claim all of the donations you made in the year they were made. When you donate over $200, you are automatically eligible to carry them forward and claim them on your tax return for any of the next five years. This flexibility means that the unclaimed carry forward portion may qualify for a larger tax deduction for you, in the future.
