Are you donating something to be auctioned? Or buying something at a charity auction?

Either way, you will be thinking about claiming the year-end donations tax rebate of a third of the amount you’ve donated.

Sorry, neither qualifies…

Only cash donations to charities are eligible for the rebate.

As for anything purchased at a charity auction… Well, you’re just buying something, not making a gift.
