Enhanced Charitable Tax Credit
Great news for donors!
The Alberta provincial charitable tax credit on annual donations over $200 is now 21 per cent. When added to the federal charitable tax credit of 29 per cent, you receive a 50 per cent non-refundable tax credit for every dollar donated over $200.
For example, if you donate a total of $500 to four or five charities throughout the year, you would receive a combined federal and provincial charitable tax credit of $200. For more information on Alberta's charitable tax credit, click here.
The charitable tax credit applies to Canada Revenue Agency-registered charities ONLY. These organizations are eligible to issue official income tax receipts.
