New Tax Incentive to Encourage Giving

Now is the time to make a donation if you haven't claimed any charitable contributions in the last 5 years on your income tax.  You might be eligible for a one-time super credit that can almost double your deduction.  You qualify as a first-time donor if neither your or your spouse or common law partner claimed the charitable tax credit or first-time donor super credit in any taxation year after 2007.  For more information vist the Canada Revenue Agency website.
