All donations to Oxfam of $5 or over are tax deductible in New Zealand. Claiming your tax and donating it to Oxfam is a fantastic way to make your donation go further. For example, if you donate $100 you are eligible to claim $33. Donating this to Oxfam makes your gift worth $133. Simply hold onto your tax receipts and complete the tax rebate form IR526 after March 31 and add "Oxfam New Zealand" and the bank account details 01 0202 0117805 002 to section 8. Let us know you have donated your rebate by emailing us or phoning us. We'd love to hear from you.
To claim a tax rebate, you need to fill in an IR526 form which you can print from the IRD website or phone the IRD on 0800 257 733 to request one.
