How to donate your tax rebate to our work

Tearfund supporters can take the hassle out of claiming their tax rebate by registering with Tax Management NZ. TMNZ can arrange to collect all necessary receipts and can even arrange to have the rebate ‘re-gifted’ to your charity of choice – possibly Tearfund.
