We all know that we are to give to Caesar (the CRA) his due in taxes. What many don’t know is that the Canadian government has a number of incentives for those who give to charities, which in our case are many assembly ministries, to reduce the amount of taxes you pay.
In other words, the government will give you back a portion of your donations to encourage you to give more. Depending on your situation these tax saving can be significant. So don’t give the government all your money when they encourage you to give it to the Lord’s work instead.
