Tax-Deductions
Special Olympics Australia complies with Australian Taxation Office guidelines. Special Olympics Australia, can only issue a tax-deductible receipt, if the fundraising revenue is raised from a “donor’’ who does not receive any benefits in return. In other words, the revenue must be given without any obligations owing back to the donor. Fundraising revenue raised from raffles, sausage sizzles, auctions are not considered “donations” as the donor receives something in return for their money. It is not possible to issue a tax-deductible receipt for these activities. Levy payments are also not tax-deductible and as such it is not possible to issue a tax-deductible receipt. If in doubt we recommend that you seek your own independent tax advice.
