Oregon’s Political Tax Credit is a gift for you to help support your favorite causes and candidates. You can donate up to $100 per couple filing jointly or $50 per individual — if you do it by Dec. 31, 2017. You’ll get it all back in a tax credit on your Oregon income taxes.
It’s not a deduction, it is a dollar-for-dollar credit. So it doesn’t cost you a cent.
You can donate to your favorite county party, our state or national party, or any candidate for upcoming elections.
Take advantage of this little gem today. And then do it again in January for next year’s taxes.
