First-time donor’s Super Credit

If you are a first-time donor, or if you have not claimed a donation credit since 2007, you may qualify for a new tax incentive to encourage donations, called the First-time donor’s super credit. Starting in the 2013 taxation year, this new credit effectively adds 25% credit on $1,000 of monetary donations. As a result, a first-time donor will be allowed a 40% federal credit for donations of $200 or less, and a 54% federal credit for the portion of donations over $200 but not exceeding $1,000.
