For every donation you make, you are able to claim 33.33% back as a tax credit, and you can claim up to four years previous if you haven't already done so. Below we have some details on how to claim this back yourself through the IRD.
To claim your tax rebate back,you can do this online by simply using a tax receipt - either a pdf, photo or scanned version of a physical document.
Please note -
