The Charitable Tax Credit
The More You Give, the More You Get
The beauty of charitable donation is the unconditional generosity of the donor, but there’s no reason you shouldn’t be rewarded for your selflessness.
The Charitable Tax Credit has been put in place expressly for that purpose! Just like other forms of tax credit, the Charitable Tax Credit means that a percentage of the total amount you have donated to registered charities can be deducted from your total taxes payable to the government.
This means a bigger tax refund each year that you can use to treat yourself! At Blackthorn Bookkeeping, we are committed to compiling all of your donation records for your Charitable Tax Credit and providing you with maximum savings.
The charities to which you donate are almost certainly certified to contribute to your Charitable Tax Credit. You will be shocked at the number of organizations that qualify!

What kinds of gifts are considered charitable donations for the Charitable Tax Credit?
What Are the Benefits of the Charitable Tax Credit?
Just as there are few limits set on applicable charities for your Charitable Tax Credit, appropriate donations and potential refunds are similarly unrestricted. After all, giving to charity is an act that warrants only positive results!
You can claim up to 75% of your income for your Charitable Tax Credit. In Ontario, about 5% of your charitable donations, if they total under $200, goes toward reducing your taxable income and building a refund. For donation totals over $200, the rate is more than double! In either case, this amount is added to the Charitable Tax Credits at the federal level, making for an amazingly beneficial option in your tax return process.
