Important Tax Information RE: Donations
If you are a taxpayer and kindly donate €250 or more within one year, MWCF can reclaim the tax paid on your donation. For example, based on current tax rates, your €250 donation would be worth an additional €112 per annum to MWCF at no added cost to you. If you are happy for MWCF to reclaim the tax benefit please download the form below and email your signed copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
How it works
The Government-approved tax back scheme allows charities to claim 44.9% in tax back on donations over €250, at no cost to you, our donor. All you need to do is sign and return a CHY3 tax-back form so we can claim the tax back from the Revenue Commissioners.
Do I Qualify?
In order for us to claim tax back on your donations you must have donated €250 or more to the Mid-Western Cancer Foundation within one year. You can make your donation as a once-off donation or in instalments. For example, a monthly gift of €21 over 12 months totals €252, and qualifies for the tax back scheme. This only applies to personal gifts, and not to funds raised through sponsorship. It doesn’t matter if you’re PAYE or self-assessed. Since 2013, self-assessed taxpayers can no longer claim tax back on charitable donations – only the charity can make this claim from Revenue.
How Your Tax Helps
We can claim 44.9% in tax back on donations over €250, at no cost to you. That’s an additional €112.25 on top of your €250 donation.
What Do I Do Now
Download your CHY3 tax-back form or call us on 061 210979 and we’ll send you one in the post. All you need do is fill in and sign the form, confirming that you are an Irish taxpayer and that you have paid enough income or capital gains tax to cover the amount we will reclaim.
Send your completed forms to The Mid-Western Cancer Foundation and we’ll do the rest.
