Tax Considerations

You should always seek legal advice so that your wishes are carried out just as you intend.

Charitable Status

Burnet Institute is both income tax exempt and endorsed as a deductible gift recipient (DGR). All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Tax considerations

In some circumstances, there may be tax advantages if you make a donation to the Burnet Institute during your lifetime rather than bequeathing it through your Will.

Bequests of property (including land, real estate and shares) to Burnet Institute may be exempt from Capital Gains Tax.

Always seek independent legal and financial planning advice about the tax implications of a donation or bequest to the Institute.
