Frequently Asked Questions
What is a donation tax credit? Can I sign up?
If you’re a NZ taxpayer, you can claim 33.33 cents for every dollar that you donate to charities or schools – this 33.33 cents is your donation tax credit. Anyone who is an individual (i.e. not a trust, partnership or company) may be eligible, and can opt in to be a TaxGifter for an organisation. To be a TaxGift partner, you must either be an approved donee organisation (as set out on www.ird.govt.nz) or a New Zealand school.
What does becoming a TaxGifter mean?
When donors become a TaxGifter for an organisation, we’ll work with Inland Revenue to claim the donation tax credit on their gifts to that organisation, and pass it back to them as a further gift in the donor's name. Each gift has more impact! This does not affect any other tax agents that a donor might have appointed for other reasons (e.g., if they have an accountant that does their income tax returns).
How does my gift keep on growing?
The best bit is, a donated tax credit is a further gift: this means that another donation tax credit is claimable on it the following year. We’ll go on claiming these automatically and gifting them back in the donor's name to the same organisation: neither the donor nor the organisation have to do anything further. It’s effortless giving!
I’ve changed my mind – what do I do?
Donors can terminate your TaxGift appointment at any time simply by emailing us at email@example.com.
Do I have to pay to use TaxGift?
TaxGift is absolutely free from a donor perspective: it’s easy to TaxGift!
Organisations pay us a small fee (our standard fee is 10% +GST) for our service of integrating with Inland Revenue and claiming the donation tax credit – but only once they’ve received your further gift.
What are the terms and conditions of a donor's appointment of TaxGift?
As a donor, the terms and conditions under which you have appointed TaxGift are set out here on our website.
