Are you eligible for a tax refund? Make your donation to MND New Zealand go even further!

MND News in New Zealand

7 March 2021


The end of the tax year is almost here! As we are a registered charity (The Motor Neurone Disease Association of New Zealand Incorporated – Registration Number: CC35320), if you donated to MND New Zealand during the 2020 tax year (ending on 31st March 2021), you could be eligible for a tax refund.

We estimate approximately $57,000 could be claimed on all eligible donations that we’ve received this year from our incredible supporters.

Would you consider donating your tax refund to MND New Zealand?
If all of our eligible supporters claimed their tax refund and donated it to MND New Zealand, it could cover the cost to support over 38 families living with motor neurone disease for an entire year.

Any amount you donate will then also be eligible for tax deductions.

How to claim
You can claim your tax back online, using myIR.

Setting up for the first time will take you about five to ten minutes. From then on, the process should only take about two minutes per donation and can be done at any time up to four years after donating. For more information, visit Submit a donation receipt (

Before you start, you’ll need a couple of things…

  • The receipts for the donations you’d like to claim tax-deductibility for (this can be screenshots, jpegs, pdfs – whatever you have is fine).
    • Your myIR login details.

Important note: only corporate and personal donations are eligible for tax deductions. Funds donated in a lump sum from fundraising/events are not eligible.
