Income Tax Receipts

Income tax receipts will automatically be issued for all donations to the Museum of $10 or more. Receipts will be issued for lesser amounts upon request.

Charitable receipts for income tax purposes may be issued for donations of artifacts. The person who determines the fair market value of the property must be competent and qualified to evaluate the particular property being transferred as a gift. Donations exceeding a value of $1000 must be accompanied by a written professional appraisal, paid for by the donor, before a tax receipt can be issued.

We are grateful for any donations you make throughout the year. We realize though, that charitable donations are often made in the latter part of the year, and with that in mind, just a reminder that we are only able to issue an income tax receipt for a particular year if we receive the donation in that year. If we receive a cheque in 2012, even though it may be dated 2011, we must issue the receipt for 2012.
