Tax reduction for gifts

Starting June 1, 2019, you may deduct the tax if you donate at least SEK 2000 to one or more non-profit organizations for one year. In order for the gift to be deductible, the organization must be approved as a gift recipient at the Swedish Tax Agency. The Wilhelm Foundation is approved by the Swedish Tax Agency.

The tax credit is 25% and you need to donate at least SEK 200 per gift opportunity in order for the gift to be deductible. The maximum amount is SEK 6 000 per year, which means that you have the opportunity to get back up to 1 500 SEK each year.

This applies to Swedish citizens

Prerequisites to receive deductions
To be able to take part in the tax reduction, you need to have reached the age of 18 and have a social security number to which the gift can be linked. If the gift is given via social media such as Instagram and Facebook or via Swish, we will not automatically access your social security number. Send an email to Wilhelm foundation with your personal data and if donated through Facebook attach your receipt. Donate your gift in the way that suits you best!

When will the refund
The tax credit is will be in the tax return the year after the gift(s) has been given. This means that gifts given between January 1 and December 31, 2021, will appear in your income tax return in 2022.
