myIR: Tax credits for donations

http://bit.ly/2lr8bKt

Recent improvements to our myIR Secure Online Services make it easier for your supporters to claim a tax credit when they donate to you.

Once registered for a myIR account, supporters can upload their receipts in myIR at any time. They can upload photos or scans of paper receipts, but if you provide an electronic receipt this makes it even easier.

At the end of the tax year, your supporters won’t have to complete a paper form. We’ll automatically calculate the credit and pay it into their bank account much sooner than for paper forms.

To help your supporters claim the donation tax credit, make sure your receipts include:
• donor’s name
• the amount they donated
• the date they donated
• a clear statement that it was a donation
• your organisation’s name and IRD number
• your official stamp or letterhead
• your charity number (if you have one).
Let your supporters know our myIR online services will help them claim their entitlements more easily and quickly.
