Consultation is important to us and we encourage you to have your say about our tax rulings and other documents.

About the consultation process

Inland Revenue produces a number of statements and rulings to explain to taxpayers and their agents how taxation laws affect them. These are produced by the Office of the Chief Tax Counsel (OCTC) and Legal and Technical Services business groups of Inland Revenue. We are keen to produce items that accurately and fairly reflect taxation legislation and are useful to taxpayers and their advisors. Your feedback, as a user of that legislation, is highly valued.

You can have your say by providing us with comment on the technical and/or commercial aspects of the drafts. We will acknowledge receipt of your comments immediately, and reply in more detail to you before the item is finalised.

Drafts currently available for consultation are listed below and can be downloaded until the comment deadline. New drafts will be added as they become available.

PUB00190: Income tax - Donee organisations and gifts

The Commissioner understands some donee organisations (such as charities), along with their supporters, need more certainty on when payments are gifts for income tax purposes. This is important for donee organisations when issuing donation receipts, and for supporters when they seek to claim donation tax credits. This QWBA is to clarify when a donations receipt may be issued by a donee organisation and to provide some guidance on common fundraising activities.

Comment deadline: 11 February 2016
