The IRD have made claiming donations easier than ever before. The process takes about 15 minutes from start to finish with the rebate issued within 24 hours, if not instantly.
The space Smart Donation once filled is replaced by IRD because of the simplicity and proficiency of their website. To claim your rebate you will first need to get the REB tax code and then fill out a form to claim your rebate. Below are the simple steps on how to get the tax code and after, the form.

Step 1. Click on More in the section “I want to…”
Step 2. Click on “Register for donation tax credit”
Step 3. Complete the form
Step 4. Either Submit or Save Draft
You have now completed the process to obtain the REB tax code!
