WHEN FILING YOUR OHIO TAX RETURN,
REMEMBER TO CHECK "YES" FOR THE 
OHIO POLITICAL PARTY FUND.

You have an opportunity to help your State and Local Democratic Parties at no cost to you by checking the Ohio Political Party Fund box on your tax return!

When filing your Ohio Tax return, please remember to check "Yes" for the Ohio Political Party Fund (and check the box again for your spouse, if filing a joint return). Checking "Yes" will not increase your tax or decrease your refund.

Checking “Yes” will indicate to the Ohio State Treasurer that you want money from the Ohio Political Parties Fund to do three things:

  1. Pay for the necessary annual audits of the State & County Political Parties;
  2. Give half of the remaining funds to the Ohio State Parties; and
  3. Divide the other half to each County Party in accordance with the ratio that the number of checkoffs in each county bears to the total number of checkoffs.

These funds are restricted use funds, mainly to be used to operate and maintain offices. They cannot be used to further the election or defeat of any particular candidate or to influence directly the outcome of any candidate or issue election.

Over 300,000 taxpayers designated one dollar – $1.00 – of their state taxes to strengthen the two-party system. Making this donation does not increase the total amount of tax you owe nor reduce the refund you receive. It does help local and state parties pay for their administrative and operation costs allowing other fundraising dollars to be used for more direct support of our Democratic candidates and campaigns.

Say “Yes”!  Easy check-off and investment of one dollar – $1.00!

Thank You in advance for supporting your State and Local Democratic Parties!
