Tax credit claim form 2019 (IR526)

Use for the 2019 tax year

Donations made through payroll giving

This form can't be used for donations made through payroll giving as you received the tax credits for these at the time of your donation.

Use this form to claim a tax credit if, in the tax year you're claiming for, you:

  • received taxable income, for example salary or wages, or
  • have valid receipts for donations of $5 or more made to approved donee organisations.

To complete this form you'll need:

  • receipts for all donations that you'd like to claim
  • the bank account number you'd like this tax credit paid into.

If you want this amount transferred to another person's income tax account you'll need:

  • their IRD number
  • the period you want this credit paid to.

Once you've completed this form send it back to us with all your receipts.

Note: We'll send you confirmation of the amount of your tax credit within six weeks, unless we need to wait for your IR3 income tax return to be filed.
