Charitable Donation Tax Credit Calculator
This calculator lets you estimate the amount of tax credit available for eligible donations claimed on an income tax and benefit return for a tax year, by province or territory of residence. It does not take into account all possible tax situations. The charitable tax credit is non-refundable and can be used to reduce your income tax for a tax year. These calculations are based on the information you provide, so it is important that you enter accurate information.
First-Time Donor's Super Credit
The CRA’s first-time donor’s super credit gives you an extra 25% non-refundable federal tax credit when you claim your charitable donation tax credit. This means that you can get a 40% credit for up to $200 in cash donations and a 54% credit for the part of the cash donations that is over $200 but not more than $1,000. This is in addition to the provincial credit.
