Frequently Asked Questions

Who will receive a tax receipt?

Individuals, families, groups and businesses who give $15 or more in a calendar year will automatically receive a tax receipt.

Churches, schools and other non-profit organizations only need to provide our Charitable Tax Number for their accounting purposes.

Who can claim a tax receipt?

With the exception of spouses who can claim each other’s tax receipts, only the person whose name is on the tax receipt can claim it.

When will I receive my tax receipt?

Digital tax receipts will be sent via email and available on accounts in late January. Printed tax receipts are typically mailed out in February. 

How can I access my tax receipt online?

If we have your email address on file you will receive an email with a PDF attachment of your tax receipt in late January. To ensure we have your correct email address on file, log in or register  for a My World Vision account. With a My World Vision account you’ll also be able to access your tax receipts for the past seven years at any time!

What are the benefits of receiving your tax receipts digitally?

-       A PDF attachment of your tax receipt will be sent right to your inbox as soon as it’s available in late January! No more logging in or searching through paperwork when it’s time to do your taxes.

-       And most of all, World Vision will be able to re-invest the savings from printing and postage into programs that will help even more children – something many of our supporters continue to report as very important to them.

If you require a replacement receipt, you can access up to 7 years of previous receipts by logging into your account. Or you can call us toll free at 1-866-595-5550. Please note that when you request a replacement receipt, your original one is no longer valid because a new receipt number will be issued.
