Did you make a gift or donation of $2 or more to an approved organisation?
Your receipt should show whether your donation is tax-deductible.
To check whether an organisation is an approved organisation, contact them or go to abn.business.gov.auExternal Link
Generally, you cannot claim a deduction for a gift or donation if you received something in return (for example, raffle tickets or a dinner).
Answering this question
If you made one or more donations of $2 or more to bucket collections conducted by an approved organisation for natural disaster victims, you can claim a tax deduction of up to $10 for the total of those contributions without a receipt.
You must read question D9 if you need any more information or had any of the following:
- gifts of property and shares
- contributions to fund-raising events
- political donations.
