Tax deductibility of donations

To ensure funding and support for projects in aid of refugees, the Federal Government is temporarily easing the tax rules for deductibility of cash donations or donations in kind in support of such projects. The arrangement was first limited to donations made between August 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016 but has been extended in the meantime until December 31, 2018.

For more information, please refer to the letter issued by the Federal Ministry of Finance on September 22, 2015 and the renewal. Relevant explanation is provided by Stiftung Warentest (in German only).
