A Gifts to Waseda from donors residing in Japan are eligible for tax benefits. There are two types of benefits: tax credits and tax deductions. In addition, certain municipalities allow gifts to Waseda to be deductible, and those who reside in those areas may receive deductions in their individual inhabitant taxes.
Q Can I receive tax benefits for gifts of 2,000 yen or less?
A If the total amount of your gifts during the calendar year (from January to December) is less than 2,000 yen, you cannot receive tax benefits. However, if you have given to institutions other than Waseda that are certified as special public interest promotion corporations, and the total amount of your gifts exceeds 2,000 yen for the year, the excess amount is eligible for tax benefits.
A You are allowed to file tax returns or refund returns for up to five years in the past. However, the period and deadline for filing differ depending on your past tax filing status and whether you are required to file those tax returns. For further details, please contact your local tax office.
A We certainly can reissue a receipt, so please contact us to make that request. Please note that the word “reissued” will be printed on it.
