Tax relief on donations

It is easier than ever to get tax relief on your donations. You will receive a receipt for all donations made via iDonate.

If you are a PAYE worker and your donation is valued at €250 or more in 12 month period please consider completing a CHY 3 or CHY 4 form. The tax relief could substantially increases your donation to your chosen charity.

Income Tax Payers – you can substantially increase the value of your donation at no additional cost to you! Firstly, if you donate €250 or more to a charity with CHY registation in a calendar year. Secondly, you pay income tax either through PAYE or through self-assessment. Thirdly, you complete and return a CHY 3 (a five year enduring tax rebate declaration) or CHY 4 (a once-off annual tax rebate declaration) form to your chosen charity. Then your chosen charity can claim a tax rebate from the Revenue Commissioners in respect of that donation.

In addition, rebates are calculated on a grossing-up basis at a special rate of 31%. Thus, a €250 donation attracts a tax rebate of €112, increasing the value of your donation by 45 per cent.

The Revenue forms, which also include answers to some frequently asked questions, are available on:
