Dear GD Green
Thank you for your request under the Official Information Act 1982, in which you requested
… Number of donations made by individual taxpayers (not corporate) to IRD
recognised charities in the past 5 years, and the number of individual taxpayers who
subsequently requested tax credits for their donations to the donee organisations.
The amount in dollars of the donations made by individual taxpayers to IRD
recognised charities in the past 5 years, and the amount in dollars approved as tax
credits to these individuals.
The number of tax credits requested organised by amounts donated, i.e. $1- $25,
$26-$50, $51-$100, $101-$150 (increments of $50) or a data file I can sort out
It’s possible for a taxpayer to file for a tax credit within 4 years of the donation,
hence donations and subsequent tax credits requested / approved may be difficult to
match year-by-year? If this is true, please let me know?
We received your request on 1 August 2018 and will respond by 29 August 2018.
Manager, Government and Executive Services
