Newfoundland and Labrador political contribution tax credit
You can claim a tax credit on contributions made to registered political parties, registered district associations, or registered non-affiliated candidates, as defined under the Elections Act, 1991, of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The annual maximum credit is $500 and is calculated as follows:
- 75% of the first $100 contributed
- 50% of the next $450 contributed
- 33 ⅓% of the next $600 contributed
Claiming the credit
On line 891 of Schedule 5, Tax Calculation Supplementary – Corporations, enter the total amount of qualifying contributions, and on line 500, enter the amount of the credit you are claiming.
Receipts – You do not have to file official receipts with your return. However, keep them in case the CRA asks for them later. The CRA can only accept photocopies if the issuer certifies them as true copies.
