Charitable Tax Credits:
Ready to reduce your tax bill?
If you already claim your charitable donations on your annual tax return, you know what a difference government tax incentives make. Simply put, there’s no easier way to make your charitable giving dollars work harder.
Our Canadian governments know that charitable work is key to making our communities, country and world a better place.
And, if you’re new to charitable giving or have not claimed a charitable donation for any year after 2007, the rewards are even greater!
Whether you’re a first time donor or a long-time perennial giver, use our charitable tax credit calculator to see the difference tax credits can make. Then, imagine the possibilities of how much more you can give or what you can do with more money in your pocket!
Calculate Your Savings
At CanadaHelps.org, we enable Canadians to donate online to any registered Canadian charity and receive an instant tax receipt. We also provide more than 17,000 charities, most of them small to medium-sized, the online fundraising tools, technology, and education they need to succeed. Because we’re a charity ourselves, our fees are a fraction of those of the for-profit alternatives, allowing more money to go directly to the cause. Your generous donation will help us meet the growing needs of charities that rely on our services.
*This calculator lets you estimate the amount of the non-refundable tax credit you will receive for monetary donations to registered Canadian charities claimed on your 2016 income tax return based on your province or territory of residence and sum of donations in the 2016 tax year. It does not take into account all possible tax situations. As a non-refundable tax credit, it can only be used to reduce tax owed; if you don’t owe any tax, you don’t get a refund. Other credits or restrictions may also apply, such as those related to your total income and additional considerations for residents of Quebec and Alberta. An individual is eligible for the Super Tax Credit if neither the individual nor the individual’s spouse or common-law partner has claimed the Canadian Donations Tax Credit for any year after 2007.
