Tax credit updates for donors

It’s now easier to claim a tax credit on your donation!

It’s fast and simple for you to claim a tax credit after you donate to the Auckland Health Foundation.

Improvements to the Inland Revenue’s secure online service – myIR – mean you can now claim your donation tax credits and upload electronic receipts, or photos or scans of paper receipts online at any time.

This means that at the end of the tax year, as a donor, you will not have to complete a paper form. Inland Revenue will automatically calculate the credit and pay it into the bank account provided. You’ll have less to do and will receive your refund much sooner.

In a nutshell, you can now claim donation tax credits online in a myIR account (instead of via a paper form), which means:

  • You’ll receive your refund much sooner
  • Your receipts can be electronic receipts, or photos or scans of paper receipts
  • Your receipts can be uploaded anytime during the year

This new process makes it even simpler for you, our supporters.
