Alberta Income Tax Credits
Only official contribution receipts that are issued to contributors by registered political parties, constituency associations and candidates are eligible to be claimed as Alberta income tax credits by contributors*. Chief financial officers of these political entities are not responsible for calculating the amount of any tax credit the contributor may be eligible to receive. Alberta Treasury Board and Finance, Tax and Revenue Administration Division, is responsible for determining and administering applicable political income tax credits as follows:
|Amount Contributed||Available Tax Credit||Maximum Credit||Cumulative Amount|
|Up to $200||75%||$150||$150|
|Next $900 ($201 to $1,100)||50%||$450||$600|
|Next $1,200 ($1,101 to $2,300)||33.3%||$400||$1,000|
Based on the table above, a maximum tax credit of $1,000 is reached when contributions total $2,300.
*Official contributions receipts that are issued to contributors by registered nomination contestants, registered leadership contestants and registered third parties are not eligible to be claimed for tax credits.
