For every donation you make above five dollars, you are able to claim 33.33% back from the IRD (Inland Revenue Department) as a tax credit. You can even choose to transfer that credit back to us to cover the administrative cost of Gumboot Friday. This turns a $100 donation into a $133 donation. It's a great way to make your donation go even further and is a huge help!
You can process your donation tax credit online using the tax receipt we send you. It's possible to claim for donations from up to four years ago if you have not already done so.
To submit your receipt online, you will need a myIR login. If you don't have one, registering is easy (you'll need your IRD number).
Register for, or log in to, your myIR account.
Once you have the 'Donation tax credit' option on your home page, select Enter donation tax credit receipts in your donation tax credit account.

Click + Add a receipt and fill in the details.

That's it, now click on Submit.
