Postponing charitable donations on T4

Recommended Posts

How can I postpone claiming charitable donations if they appear on my T4? For all other charitable donations, Ufile instructs to not enter donations that will not be claimed in-year. However, I seem to have no choice for donations that appear in my T4.

 

Am I missing something? If not, this is a big gap, as it is forcing me to take a tax decision that I do not want.

You should still be able to carry forward the donation amount instead of claiming it. I always enter all donations in the year they are made, and then indicate how much I want to claim in a given year. You might need to turn off the opti-max feature for donations to let you do this.

Ah, I found it on the page "Sharing donations between spouses and optimization of donations" in the"Donations and Political Contributions section".

 

What threw me off is that ufile asks a similar question re: sharing of credits under 'Controls' AND the  last sentence (in bold) of the following tip: 

 

"You do not have to claim the donations made in 2012 on your 2012 tax return. It may be more beneficial for you to carry them forward and claim them on the return of any of the five following years. Regardless of how you do it, you can only claim each donation once. Do not enter amounts you do not wish to use in the current year."

 

 

 

Thanks for the help.
