Tax Efficient Giving Download Tax Forms CHY3 Enduring CHY4 Annual TAX EFFICIENT GIVING Donations to a charity are tax efficient if you donate €250 or more in one calendar year. By reclaiming tax on your donation we can increase it by an extra 45% at no extra cost to you! A new “blended” rate of 31% will be applied to all donations of €250 and more regardless of the donor’s actual tax rate, thus valuing all donations from the public equally. HOW DOES TAX EFFICIENT GIVING WORK? For example, Joan makes a cash donation of €1,000 to Saint John of God in the tax year 2017. Under the Tax Relief Scheme the Saint John of God is deemed to have received a donation of €1,449.27 (i.e. €1,000 grossed up at 31%) less tax deducted of €449.27.On the assumption that Joan has paid income tax for 2014 of at least €449.27, Saint John of God can obtain a refund of that amount from Revenue after the end of the tax year 2017 – at no extra cost to you!. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO? It couldn’t be easier, all you need is to enter your PPS number, Sign and Date the attached CHY3 Enduring Certificate and return it using the enclosed pre-paid envelop. This will enable Saint John of God to reclaim the tax.
