Introduction of 80G-12A Registration

Under the Income Tax Act 1961, certain contributions or donations are eligible for tax deduction under Section 80G certificate. NGOs and other non-profit organizations must register and confirm with the Income Tax Department to obtain such certificates. The 80G certificate is to encourage more and more donors to donate funds to such organizations. The advantage that a donor gets by donating to such an NGO is that he gets a tax exemption on 50% of his donation because the donor can deduct his donations from his gross total income.

Trusts, NGOs, and other businesses are excluded from section 8 income tax under 12A registration. In essence, NGOs are associations created for humane and non-profit purposes. However, unless they are registered under Section 12A of the Income Tax Act, they have income and would be required to pay tax at regular rates. Religious and charitable trusts are not distinguished in Section 12A of the IT Act, 1961. Therefore, both kinds of organizations must be registered under 12A.

Recent Notification on 80G Registration

The Department has extended the due date to November 25, 2022, for fully non-compliant trusts or institutions that have not filed a 10A by March 31, 2022. In some cases, partial compliance (that have already filed a 10A before 31 March 2022) did not file Form 10AB due to reasons beyond their control, and therefore the Income Tax Department sought to deny exemption of 80G purely on technical grounds.
