Kiwis are great at giving, but we’re not so great at claiming donation rebates back from Inland Revenue!
What is a donation rebate:
- When you make a donation of $5 or more, you can claim up to a third of the amount back from Inland Revenue. And even better news, you can claim on any donations made over the past four years. You can keep this as a reward for your good deed or donate it back to a cause you feel passionate about.
How do you claim a rebate:
- You can claim your rebate directly through Inland Revenue by visiting, www.ird.org.nz
- Alternatively, Tax Management NZ and their Smart Donation platform can help you to claim your rebate - and all it takes is a form. Simply visit, www.smartdonation.co.nz
