Tax Exemption Receipt (Malaysian Donors Only)

1Is my donation tax-exempted?

If you are a Malaysian citizen, you are entitled to tax exemption for all cash donations as defined under sub-section 44 (6) of Income Tax Act 1967, Government Gazette: 5879

No. You are free to donate as much or as little an amount, and still be entitled to a tax-exempt receipt.

However, please note that we have a certain level of administrative cost that needs to be maintained (postage, notification systems etc), as such we require your consideration on the appropriate amount of minimum RM50 should you wish to claim tax-exemption.

3What information do you need from me if I want to get a tax-exempt receipt for my donation?

We need to have your full name (as required to be written on the tax-exempt receipt), and mailing address to post the receipt to.

We also collect your email address and phone number to follow up on your receipt if necessary.

You should receive your tax-exempt receipt within 2 weeks of us receiving your notification (together with proof of payment) via fax or email.

Do notify us if this has not happened and we will attend to your request immediately. Please note that in the event of a disaster, there may be some delays due to the volume of transactions that we receive.

5I lost the original tax-exempt receipt that you have issued. Can I get another copy from Malaysian AIDS Foundation?

We can only issue a certified true copy receipt to replace the receipt that you have lost.

Please note that to minimise our administrative cost (postage, notification systems etc), we will only allow a one-time issuance of replacement receipts.

We will issue tax-exempt receipt as per request, as long as the transaction and your request date occurred within the same calendar year.

Technical and Security Concerns

1I'm donating using my credit card. Can I trust your site to keep my information secure?

Yes. We do not view or capture your credit card details.

All payment transactions are handled by iPay88, which has put in place various security requirements and compliance guidelines to curb fraudulent transactions from occurring. iPay88 complies with PCI Data Security Standard and Malaysia Payment System Act.

On our part, our donation page is hosted on a secure server to ensure integrity of data and security of your transaction.

2Why does it say “Mobile88.com” on my credit card statement?

This happens because all payments are processed by iPay88, thus the transaction will appear as "Mobile88.com" or "Mobile88.com Sdn. Bhd." on your credit card statement.

Other payment methods such as local online banking are also processed by iPay88.

3When I click on the button "Credit Card Payment with iPay88", nothing happens after that. Why?
