It may seem too good to be true that we Oregonians have the opportunity to donate to a political candidate or Political Action Committee (like The Mother PAC) and get it all back, but it’s really, actually true. So get giving!
Here’s how it works:
You donate $50 (if you’re a single filer) or $100 (if you’re a joint filer) to The Mother PAC (or another PAC, political party, or political candidate in Oregon) and when the time comes to pay your taxes or get a rebate, you get it all back. 100% of it. This is no deduction, folks, it’s a full credit back to you. Think of it as a political loan that’s fully repaid (no interest, though!).
The only restriction (new in 2013) is for single filers who have adjusted gross incomes above $100,000 and joint filers who bring home more than $200,000 in a year.
By all means, give more if you like – we promise to put it to good use. But beyond the $50 or $100 described above, the rest is neither deductible nor a credit. But it’s an investment in the kind of Oregon that you want and that we are working hard to make real.
