Thank you for your support!
The Political Contribution Tax Credit for Individuals rewards you for participating in the political process in Ontario by giving you up to $1,553.93 in refundable tax credits. Official information about this tax credit is available here. The Ontario Libertarian Party has made arrangements through Stripe so you can make recurring monthly donations.
To get the credit, you need to:
- be an Ontario resident on December 31 of the tax year, and
- have made a contribution during that year to a candidate in an Ontario provincial election, or to a registered Ontario political party, registered constituency association or registered leadership contestant. You cannot claim this credit for contributions to municipal or federal elections.
Your total donations for 2023 to the Ontario Libertarian Party cannot exceed $3,535. You can also donate up to $3,535 to each of our Constituency Associations. during a By-election
The amount of credit depends on how much you donate to each organization in 2023. The rate is:
- 75 per cent on the first $465 of donations
- 50 per cent on the portion of your donation between $465 and $1,552
- 33.33 per cent on the portion between $1,552 and $3,532
- Corporations and Unions may not make contributions to political parties, Constituency Associations or candidates for provincial parliament. This includes Stripe accounts in the name of an incorporated business or Association.
- If you are not a resident of Ontario you may not make a donation to the Party. You may become a member and pay $10 for a one year membership.
Unlike the other parties, the Ontario Libertarian Party does not receive any government subsidies to finance its operations. 100% of our financing comes from the voluntary contributions of Party members. We are very efficient with the monies we receive and operate with an all volunteer Executive Committee.
