S33. Can property donated for sale at an auction be considered a gift?


Short answer

Yes. In order for there to be a gift for the purposes of the Income Tax Act, there must be a voluntary transfer of property to the charity. How a charity uses donated property is generally not relevant in determining whether the donor has made a gift to the charity.
