I purchased an item through a silent auction at an event. Do I get a tax receipt?
Posted by Nina Sljivo on 17 July 2013 06:10 PM

If someone purchases an item at an auction, they are receiving a benefit (the purchased item) for their money and thus a tax receipt will NOT be issued. Purchases of live or silent auction items, raffle tickets, event admission tickets or green fees are not eligible for tax receipts. SOO can issue tax receipts only to individuals or organizations that make a donation without receiving any product or tangible item in return. Most participants are happy to acquire an auction item without any expectation of receiving a tax receipt. They are delighted to know that their contribution would go to a worthy cause.
