How payroll giving works

With payroll giving, your donation to Lifeline is taken out of your regular pay before it goes into your bank account. If your donation is more than $5, you receive a third of the donation amount as an immediate tax rebate. So if you donate $15 to Lifeline through payroll giving, you’ll only have a $10 reduction in your take-home pay.

With other forms of donating, you usually have to wait until the end of the tax year to claim your tax rebate. Payroll giving ensures you get the tax advantages immediately, while providing a regular and sustainable donation to your charity of choice.
