Charitable donation tax credit calculator
For donations made after March 20, 2013, qualifying first time donors may receive an additional federal tax credit of 25% on the first $1,000 of monetary donations, over and above the amounts provided in the first calculation below. For details, go to First-Time Donor's Super Credit.
Please select your province of residence, enter the eligible amount of the donation(s) and select "Calculate" to display the results.
This calculator lets you estimate the amount of tax credit available for eligible donations claimed on an income tax and benefit return for a tax year, by province or territory of residence. It does not take into account all possible tax situations. The charitable tax credit is non-refundable and can be used to reduce your income tax for a tax year. These calculations are based on the information you provide, so it is important that you enter accurate information. To determine which donations qualify for the charitable tax credit, please refer to the following:
- Which organizations can issue official donation receipts?;
- What types of gifts qualify for charitable tax credits?; and
- How do I calculate my charitable tax credits?
If you are a resident of Quebec and are entitled to a refundable federal tax abatement, your actual federal tax credit will be reduced. If you are required to pay provincial income surtax, your actual saving will be more than the charitable tax credit calculated because the credit will reduce your base income taxes and your provincial surtax. Please note that this calculator is not intended for:
- corporations; and
- Alberta residents with unclaimed donations and gifts for the years 2004 to 2006 (line 5895 of Form AB428, Alberta Tax and Credits).
