Charitable donation tax credit calculator

Use this tool to calculate your charitable donation tax credit. In the first section, calculate your federal and provincial or territorial tax credit. If you qualify, you can calculate your first-time donor's super credit in the second section.

The calculation is based on amended legislation and is only for donations made after 2015.


For examples, go to Charitable donation tax credit rates.

This calculator does not take into account all tax situations. These calculations are based on the information you provide, so it is important that you enter accurate information.

If you are a Quebec resident and are entitled to a refundable federal tax abatement, your savings will be less than the calculated charitable donation tax credit.

If you have to pay a provincial surtax, your savings will be more than the calculated charitable donation tax credit. This is because the credit will reduce the amount on which your provincial surtax is calculated.

This calculator is not for corporations.

This calculator does not take into account the Ontario trusts and estates rate of 17.41% for donations over $200.
