18A Status

The special status provided by section 18A of the Income Tax Act allows your local donors to claim tax deductions for their donations to you (within certain limits).

18A status used to be available only to educational organisations, but is now possible for a wide range of humanitarian and welfare work, as well as environmental and conservation organisations.

If I am making a new PBO application and consider that you will qualify for 18A status, I will make the 18A application simultaneously. I also make 18A applications on behalf of organisations which already have tax exempt status.
