Alex Johnson II for Albany, Oregon Mayor

Oregon’s Political Tax Credit

Your contribution will make a big difference in our efforts to re-elect Alex Johnson II as Mayor of Albany—and it doesn’t have to cost you anything.

If you file an Oregon tax return, you may be eligible for the Oregon Political Tax Credit which allows you to contribute up to $50 or $100 (married filing jointly, $50 individual filers) each year to the Alex for Albany Political Action Committee and receive every dollar of it back when you file your income tax return next year.

Through our tax system, the state of Oregon gives each tax-paying Oregonian a $50 gift. But you can’t keep it. You either pay it back in taxes—or donate it to a qualified political committee like Alex for Albany in order to take advantage of this tax credit.

This is not a deduction. It is a tax credit. This means if you owe money to the state at the end of the year, you will owe up to $50 or $100 less. If you are due a refund, your refund will be that much more.

To contribute, please send your check to:

More about Oregon’s Political Tax Credit
Oregon offers an income tax credit to Oregon tax filers who contribute to qualifying state, federal or local political campaigns. The total credit is limited to $100 on a joint return or $50 on a single or separate return. Please see Oregon Secretary of State for details. Contributions or gifts to this campaign are not tax-deductible for federal income.

Contributions must be dated no later than December 31, 2022, to receive the credit on your 2022 state tax return. Please note that current Oregon law allows individuals with an adjusted gross income of less than $75,000 — or joint filers with a combined income of less than $150,000 — to claim the Political Tax Credit. Consult your tax advisor for more information.
