Official donation receipt

Registered charities may issue an official donation receipt (or "tax receipt") to acknowledge a gift. An official donation receipt is subject to particular requirements under the Income Tax Act including identification that it is an official receipt for income tax purposes. Registered charities can also issue other forms of receipts to acknowledge receipt of services or other items that are not gifts. These are not tax receipts and should be clearly distinguished from the tax receipts issued to acknowledge gifts.
