TNM Donation and Taxation

The Tokyo National Museum is one of the designated public-service promotion corporations. Individuals and corporations making contributions to the Tokyo National Museum receive preferential tax treatments different from standard tax deductions. The donation made to the Tokyo National Museum is subject to this tax deduction system.

Details on Preferential Tax Treatments

Individual Donor
When an individual makes donations to a public-service promotion corporation, the amount paid is treated as a "designated donation" and a certain amount is subject to tax deduction following appropriate procedures. This system allows either [the sum of total donation made during the year] or [Amount equal to 40% of total income] (Applied to the lower amount of the two) minus 2000 yen to be deducted from taxes.

Ex) If total annual income is 8,000,000 yen:
40% of total annual income = 3,200,000 yen
Tax deducted in this case is calculated as follows:
If total amount of donation is 50,000 yen; (50,000 yen – 2,000 yen = 48,000 yen)
If total amount of donation is 4,000,000 yen; 3,200,000 – 2,000 yen = 3,198,000 yen

Corporate Donor
When a corporation makes donations to a public-service promotion corporation, the amount paid can be listed separate from standard donations to receive preferential tax deductions. In addition, the revisions to the tax system in 2012 raised the deductable amount limit to allow for a further preferential treatment.
Deductable tax amount = (Capital fund x 0.375% + 6.25% of Income) x 1/2

How to Apply for Preferential Tax Deduction

Please submit the receipt of your donation from the Tokyo National Museum when filing your taxes. The receipt is a necessary document to receive preferential tax treatment. Please store them securely.
