If you’ve made a charitable donation recently, you may be wondering about the best way for claiming donations on taxes. Every year the Australian Tax Office encourages people to donate to charities by claiming charity donations on tax returns. Any donations you’ve made to registered charities, like Save the Children, can be claimed as a tax deduction on your tax return when you submit it at the end of the financial year.
Tips on claiming donations on taxes
Anytime you make a donation of $2 or more to Save the Children Australia we’ll send you an annual tax statement at the end of each financial year. Find out more information about how to claim donations on taxes via the Australian Tax Office website.
It’s important to note that you can only claim a tax deduction for donations from organisations that have a “deductible gift recipients” (DGR) status. You’re not able to claim a tax deduction if you’ve made donations via a crowd funding platform if they’re not a DGR. Note: Save the Children has a DGR status.
Ensure that you donate to an organisation that’s a registered Deductible Gift Recipient, like Save the Children. If you’re unsure, search for the DGR status on the ABN search website. This will give you peace of mind knowing that you’re donating to a charity – such as Save the Children – that has deductive gift recipient status.
