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.

Cordray - Attorney General

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
