The Oregon Political Tax Credit
Did you know that in Oregon, you can give money to protect the environment and get it back later?
Your gift to OLCV PAC may cost you nothing! That's because Oregon has something called a "political tax credit." Under Oregon law, you can subtract donations to political committees like OLCV PAC from your state taxes.
When you file your state taxes, just subtract the amount or part of the amount you gave to OLCV PAC - up to $50 for individuals, or $100 for couples filing jointly - from what you owe. If the state owes you a refund, they will add that amount to your refund check. Read more info from the state of Oregon here.
This credit cannot be used on gifts to charities. It can only be used when you make a contribution to a political organization like OLCV PAC. In other words, you can take a portion of the money you'd normally pay in state taxes and use it to help elect pro-environment leaders in Oregon.
