Tax Efficient Donations
Under the terms of the Revenue approved Scheme of Tax Relief on Donations to Charities, if you are an Irish taxpayer (PAYE or Self Assessed), and you donate a total of €250 or more to your parish in a calendar year, your parish can claim back the related tax relief of 31% on your total donations.
That means that your donation of €250 could be actually worth €362 to your parish – at no extra cost to you. All you have to do is complete a CHY3 form (Enduring 5 years form) and return it to your local parish office and they can do the rest.
The form will be available for download from the Donation Receipt page. Further details are available on the Revenue website.
