Contributions are payable to the Progressive Conservative Party of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Information about the “Income Tax Credit Available for Contributions” is published by the Chief Electoral Office at this link: http://www.elections.gov.nl.ca/elections/Election_2007/election2007finance.asp
As the site states: The Province of Newfoundland and Labrador allows individuals and corporations to claim tax credits against Newfoundland and Labrador income tax payable for contributions made to registered political parties and registered candidates in this province.
Contributions to a leadership contestant campaign or to a contestant for a party or district association nomination are “not eligible for the tax credit.”
The allowable tax credits from Newfoundland and Labrador income tax for an individual taxpayer and a corporation are:
- 75% of the first $100 of total contributions, and
- 50% of the next $450 of total contributions, and
- 33 1/3% of the next $600.
- The maximum credit allowable is therefore calculated to be $500.
Individuals and corporations must attach an Official Receipt to their tax returns in order to claim the tax credit. Official Receipt forms will be supplied by the Chief Electoral Officer to registered political parties and candidates chief financial officers for issuing to contributors.
