Progressive Oregon Tax Credit for Political Causes

The Oregon Political Tax Credit is one of those progressive ideas that makes Oregon a great place to live, work, and play.

Through our tax system, the State of Oregon gives each tax-paying Oregonian a $50 gift.  But you can’t keep it.  Instead, you must either pay it back in state taxes — or donate it to a qualified political campaign or cause.

To
put it another way: By donating $50 to a political campaign of your
choice, you can reduce your taxes or increase your refund by that same
$50. That’s right: it’s a full 100% credit, not a deduction.
