As the December 31st calendar deadline approaches...
As the December 31st calendar deadline approaches and you are considering your charitable donations for the 2020 income tax year, please consider donating to the riding association. Your donation will directly assist our efforts to restore and maintain a strong conservative voice in our community.
Every dollar you donate will go to the local Kanata-Carleton riding association and to our community initiatives in Kanata and in West Carleton.
Here is a direct link where you can donate on-line:
To pay by cheque please make your donation payable to Kanata-Carleton PC Riding Association. Mail the cheque to Kanata Carleton PC Riding Association, 11 – 300 Earl Grey Drive, Suite 433, Kanata, Ontario, K2T 1C1.
Or phone us at 613-599-8071 and an association volunteer will be pleased to come by and pick up your cheque.
By making this political donation, you will receive a generous tax credit when you file your 2020 taxes. The maximum an individual person can donate in a calendar year to all riding associations in Ontario is $1,625. The amount of the credit depends on how much you give. The rate is:
- 75% on the first $423 donated
- 50% on the portion of your donation between $423 and $1,410
- 33% on the remainder to a maximum of $1,625
To receive credit for your contributions simply claim the credit on your personal income tax and benefit return. Official tax receipts will be mailed by February 28th in time for your tax filing.
Please note contributions cannot be divided between you and your spouse or common-law partner if only one receipt was issued.
Also, corporations are not permitted to contribute.
On behalf of the Board of the Kanata-Carleton Ontario PC Riding Association, we wish you a Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and best wishes in 2021!
