You can donate up to $100 and receive a Dollar for Dollar credit back on your 2010 Tax Refund.
Ohio has instituted a tax credit for those who give to a state level candidate for office. In Ohio, an individual is eligible for $50 per year, or $100 per year for a couple in the form of a tax credit, not deduction off of an individual or married filing joint Ohio income tax return.
You can claim a credit against your tax for contributions of money you made during the year to the campaign committee of candidates for any of the following Ohio Offices:
- Lieutenant Governor
- Secretary of State
- Auditor of State
- Treasurer of State
- Attorney General
- Chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court
- Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court
- Ohio Board of Education
- Ohio Senate
- Ohio House of Representatives
The amount of the credit is the lesser of the combined total cash contributions you made during the year or $50 ($100 for married filing joint returns).
