Tax-deductible and non-tax-deductible receipts
The Property Industry Foundation holds Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR status). This means that donations made directly to the Property Industry Foundation over $2 are eligible for a tax-deductible receipt.
Tax-deductible receipts can be issued by the Property Industry Foundation when donations are made on a purely voluntary basis with no conditions or benefits received in return.
Tax-deductible receipts are not issued when a payment results in the receipt of a good or service or the donation is not deemed to be unconditional. Examples include receiving recognition or benefits of sponsorship, purchasing raffle tickets, entry fees or auction items.
Everyone who donates to your registered Property Industry Foundation online fundraising page is automatically issued with a tax-deductible receipt via email.
You can request tax-deductible receipts for any donor who provides a cash donation to you. You'll need to forward the full amount to the Property Industry Foundation and provide their details.
Alternatively, you can remit the full donation amount in their full name through your fundraising page - ensuring you enter their email address for the receipt.
Donors are required by the ATO to substantiate tax deductions with a receipt from a DGR status organisation such as the Property Industry Foundation.
If unsure, please contact the Property Industry Foundation to ask whether we can issue a tax-deductible receipt.
For more information on tax-deductible receipts visit the ATO website.
