Northwest Territories political contribution tax credit
You can claim a tax credit on contributions made to a candidate for an election to the Northwest Territories Legislative Assembly.
The annual maximum credit is $500 and is calculated as follows:
- 100% of the first $100 contributed
- 50% of the next $800 contributed
Contributions to a political party do not qualify for this credit.
Claiming the credit
On line 898 of Schedule 5, Tax Calculation Supplementary – Corporations, enter the total amount of qualifying contributions, and on line 700, 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 accept photocopies only if the issuer certifies them as true copies.
