Cash donations & tax rebates7 March 2016
Thanks to my local friends who have given donations in the form of cash. I'm just adding this note to let you all know that I'm adding 50% to the amount you give when I pay it in. This is because LLLNZ is a registered NZ charity and donations to it attract tax rebates of 33.3%. I'll claim back the rebate when I do my tax return, ensuring that the NZ govt is also contributing to this fundraising effort.
To everyone who has donated directly themselves, don't forget to keep your receipts as you will be able to claim a tax rebate of 1/3 too (if you are an NZ taxpayer, that is).
