Oregon’s Political Tax Credit
Your contribution can make a big difference in our efforts to make redistricting reform a reality and put Oregonians in charge—and it doesn’t have to cost you anything!
If you file an Oregon tax return, you may be eligible for the Oregon Political Tax Credit which allows you to make a contribution of up to $100 (married filing jointly, $50 individual filers) to our People Not Politicians Committee and receive every dollar of it back when you file your income tax return next year.
This is not a deduction. It is a tax credit. That means that if you owe money to the state at the end of the year, you will owe up to $100 less. If you are due a refund, your refund will be that much more.
Through our tax system, the State of Oregon gives each tax-paying Oregonian a $50 gift. But you can’t keep it. You either pay it back in state taxes—or donate it to a qualified political committee like ours in order to take advantage of this tax credit.
Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
