Do I have to pay taxes on the donations received?

In most cases, receiving donations is tax-free, but there are cases you have to pay taxes on the donations received. The amount and the relationship with the donor are matters that determine whether you should pay tax on your donation or not.
Every country has different tax laws. So contact the tax authorities of your country to have more clarity.
According to Dutch Tax Rules -
If you receive multiple donations in 1 year, then you do not have to add these donations together if you receive them from different people.

There are 2 exceptions to this rule. Add the donations together if:
The donors or the recipients are partners
The donors are your parents, even if they are divorced

Find out if the donors or recipients are partners? Then go to the Partners page.

Tip: Do you have doubt whether you should pay tax on the donations received? Then contact the tax authorities.
