80G Certificate Overview
80G Certificate is issued to a non-profit organization or a charitable trust or non-governmental organizations (NGO), or a Section 8 Company by the Income Tax Department. The intention behind issuing the 80G certificate is to promote 50% tax benefits to donors so that more and more donors can donate funds to these organizations.
80G Registration Procedure
80G certificate application will be submitted to the Commissioner of Income Tax.
Once the applicant submits the form and the required documents for 80G registration, next step is on-the-premise inspection, which is to be completed by the Income Tax department. During inspection process, income tax department officials might ask for additional documents and evidence if required.
