*Assumes Ontario Residency. Formula used: 20.05% x offertory amount up to $200 + 40.16% x offertory amount above $200. Based on Federal Tax Credit:15% on offertory amount up to $200 then 29% on remainder and Ontario Provincial Tax Credit: 5.05% on offering up to $200 then 11.16% on remainder. This is a non-refundable tax credit. Non-refundable tax credits reduce your federal and provincial taxes. However, if the total of these credits is more than your federal and/or provincial taxes, you will not get a refund for the difference.
