The Oregon political tax credit has been instrumental in many pro-life victories. Most pro-lifers will definitely want to respond before the December 31st deadline. Please read the following explanation to see how the political tax credit can be a powerful resource in defense of life.
A married couple can give up to $100 to a qualified political organization and singles can give up to $50 - and then receive every penny back when they file their Oregon tax return. It’s really that simple.
When using Oregon Personal Income Tax Form 40, the contribution is noted on line 37.
When using Oregon Personal Income Tax Form 40-S you use Credit Code 723 on line 16.
This is money you cannot keep or give to your favorite charity. You must either give it to a qualified political organization or pay it in taxes. In other words, you can take a portion of the money you normally pay in state taxes and instead use it to help fight abortion or euthanasia. That’s why every pro-life taxpayer should be aware of the December 31st deadline. If you don't respond by then, the same amount of money will simply go to the state government.
