Over the course of the financial year my wife and I have made numerous donations to deductible gift recipients. When we complete our tax returns, are we free to choose whose tax return we claim the donation deductions on, or do we need to split the deductions 50/50 between our two tax returns?
Generally yes, unless you can provide proof that the full amount came from you via a separate bank account in your name only.
