For donors of items
Upon request, a tax receipt will be given to the donor of an item according to its fair market value. The value of the item must be verifiable and must be more than $20 in order to be eligible for a tax receipt.
For the bidder at the auction
Generally no tax receipt is given to the highest bidder of an item since he will benefit of that winning prize. Technical News No 26 from CRA
However a tax receipt may be given if the bid is higher of at least 25% of the item’s market value. That amount will then be the difference between the highest bid and the fair market value (for example, if a person offers a final bid of $125 on a $100 item, he will be given a $25 tax receipt).
