Gifts by credit card in Dec. in 2019 are subject to Japanese tax exemptions in 2020
Gifts by credit card in Dec. 2019 are subject to Japanese tax exemptions in 2020. Two to three months are required from the date you make your gift/pledge to the date ICU receives your gift. The date on your receipt will be the date the credit card company made the payment, not the date of the pledge. For this reason, if you make your pledge in December and wish to apply tax exemptions to that year, then we recommend making your gift via bank or postal transfer. Make a gift now by credit card, using our online giving forms.
