Charitable Income Tax Receipt Forms
These forms are available in your schools. Teachers spend a significant amount of money each year on materials for their students and classrooms. The Board has provided charitable income tax receipts to allow teachers to claim these expenses on their income tax, providing the amount purchased in the calendar year is $100 or more, and receipts are attached to the form. All Principals would have received a memo from Gord Greffe, Superintendent of Business with the applicable form. For teachers wanting to claim them for the 2003 year, these forms should be returned to the Board office before the end of January.
