Note From Candice

Unfortunately, raising money is a critically important component of any political campaign. Fortunately, a tax credit is available for contributions of up to $50 for an individual and $100 on a married/joint tax return. For 2015 the credit is at 2015 Ohio Universal IT 1040 Individual Income Tax Return on line 9 Schedule of Credits http://www.tax.ohio.gov/portals/0/forms/drafts/PIT_IT1040.pdf . This is a dollar-for-dollar full credit. Therefore, the donation costs the donor nothing. If you would like this tax credit and wish to help me, I need your check dated by December 31, 2015.

I can also accept credit card and/or PayPal contributions by clicking the “Donate” button above.  Please do so before the end of the year for the 2015 credit. For more details, I’ve created a Tax Credit Info Page.

 

As you know, I am running for the Ohio House of Representatives in 2016. It is the 53rd House District and encompasses most of Butler County. Tim Derickson is currently my State Representative. Due to term limits, he will not be running for re-election. (However, he is running for Congress.)

 

Many of you have contributed to my campaign and I thank you for that. The rest of this letter is for those who have not.

 

This is your opportunity to take advantage of the line 9 Ohio IT 1040 Political Contributions Tax Credit. That credit has helped me to raise nearly all of my donations so far. Few people take advantage of this credit. Most people don’t understand it. Or they don’t understand how a contribution could be FREE to them.

 

All Ohio taxpayers file a Federal 1040 and a State 1040. Most people have a tax professional do the work for them and may not fully understand the differences between the federal deductions & credits and the state deductions & credits. They are all different.

 

Political contributions have no value on the Federal 1040. They are not deductible from gross income and there is no credit available.

 

However, on the 2015 Ohio Universal IT 1040 Individual Income Tax Return on line 9 Schedule of Credits http://www.tax.ohio.gov/portals/0/forms/drafts/PIT_IT1040.pdf a credit is available for contributions to “state” candidates. State Candidates include all statewide offices with the exception of US Senate. The General Assembly (both State House and State Senate) are included.

 

A credit is not a deduction from taxable income like a charitable donation. A credit is a reduction of the tax itself and therefore far superior. It’s off the bottom line.

 

Please do me a favor and take advantage of the Ohio Political Contributions tax credit. It is dollar-for-dollar and worth $50 per taxpayer. It is worth $100 on a married/joint tax return.

 

Another way to think of it is that you will decide how to allocate your tax dollars. You can send me $50 ($100 for married/joint filers) and reduce what the state government collects from you by $50 per taxpayer. Or do nothing and let the state government keep your money.

 

If you prefer to send a check or money order, it must be dated by 12/31/2015 for you to take advantage of the 2015 credit. The postmark is not important.
