Confirmation of donations; use of official forms

Contributions of tax-privileged donations and membership fees may only be deducted if they are evidenced by a donation receipt issued by the recipient in accordance with an officially prescribed form.


Non-profit organizations are required to confirm donations in such a way that the donor can also claim his expenses from the tax office in his tax return.

The use of official forms is required for the confirmation of tax-deductible donations and membership fees (see "Forms"). Official forms are available for associations, foundations, public corporations, political parties and voter associations.
