When will I get my charitable tax receipt?

Canada Revenue Agency has established rules charities must follow when issuing charitable tax receipts. Charities must issue charitable tax receipts by February 28th of the calendar year that follows the charitable donation. That said, in some cases the charity knows the amount of the ticket price eligible for tax purposes and tax receipts will be issued instantly and attached to the ticket purchase confirmation email. In most cases, the charity will issue charitable tax receipts that will be sent to you by email within a few weeks of the event. Tax receipts for donations made through a charity event page will be issued immediately.

Please note: Canada Revenue Agency has clear guidelines on when charitable event tickets are eligible for receipts. Not all charitable event tickets are eligible for a receipt and many are only eligible for a portion of the ticket price. Please contact the charity running the event if you have further questions.
