Provincial tax credits for charitable donations will add even more to your tax savings! These vary depending on your province of residence. For example, for the 2005 taxation year, donors living in Ontario could claim a provincial tax credit of 6.05% on donations up to $200, and 11.16% of the gift in excess of $200.
(*Please note there is an upper maximum that can be claimed based on your net income.)
