Voter IQ logo square 180Under Ohio law, Ohio taxpayers can make a total of $50 in donations ($100 for those filing jointly) to candidates to these state offices and receive a tax credit for this amount on their state income tax filing:

  • Governor
  • Lieutenant Governor
  • Secretary of State
  • Auditor of State
  • Treasurer of State
  • Attorney General
  • Ohio Board of Education
  • Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court
  • Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court
  • Ohio Senate
  • Ohio House of Representatives

Informed voters, capable of using this tax credit, should take advantage of this to identify candidates with values similar to yours and support their campaign. It does not need to be a candidate you can vote for—for example, it can be a candidate for state representative from another district.
