If you donate up to $50 per year to an Ohio candidate you can write it off your taxes. This is not just a tax deduction, but a tax credit. So you will get your $50 back in full with your refund. So there is no reason not to do it as long as you can find a Good Choice. I have not researched the voting records of the candidates mentioned by Tom Zawistowski in the video. (I already donated $50 for 2013.) You can find out more about these candidates (and all candidates) at votesmart.org. Act fast, you have to get your donation in for 2013 by the end of the year! Here is more information from the Ohio Liberty Coalition:
As year end approaches, we urge our liberty minded supporters to take advantage of an Ohio tax credit that allows you to make a contribution of up to $50 (or $100 per couple) to certain political candidates and claim it as a credit on your state income tax. By doing so, you can provide valuable financial resources to Ohio Assembly members who have been steadfast in their support of conservative issues.
These leaders have:
- Stood strong against Medicaid expansion
- Voted against the severance tax increase
- Voted for the heartbeat bill
- Supported restoring gun rights
Now the Ohio Republican Party is looking to primary these individuals in 2014 and replace them with politicians who will do the party's bidding. OLC supporters need to show conservative leaders who have stood with us, that we will protect them from Republican party retribution. By helping fund their campaigns, we can give them the resources they need to get their message out and to continue to move forward liberty-minded principles.
- Opposed state budget increases
To take advantage of the tax credit, you can donate up to $50 (or $100 per couple) to one candidate or spread out the donation between all the conservative candidates. Any dollar amount up to the $50 per person limit will make a difference.
Please include on the memo line, "Donation from the Conservative Strike Force," so that these conservative leaders know the OLC is behind them.
Please watch the following message from Tom Zawistowski for further details.
