Attn: Buckeye Kossacks. Please take advantage of a unique state tax law that allows us to contribute up to $100 to state races and get a dollar-for-dollar tax credit in return. This is not a tax deduction; it is a much more powerful tax credit, which means, in effect, that your first $100 donation is free. You'll get your money back, in full, next spring when you file your state tax return.
The tax credit is good for up to $100 if filing jointly, or $50 single.
Here is the Tax Code. See Page 3.
