The Cultural Gifts Program offers tax incentives to encourage people to donate cultural items to public art galleries, museums, libraries and archives in Australia. Donations can include visual and decorative arts, Indigenous arts and cultural artefacts, social history and scientific collections, and archival material (among other things).
Donors can claim the GST inclusive market value of the gift as a deduction from their taxable income. To make a claim, a donor must receive at least two independent valuations from valuers that are approved by the Department to value the kind of property being gifted. They can then claim the average of the valuations as the tax deduction.
Further information about the program can be found here.
