How can I utilize Oregon's Political Contribution Tax Credit?

It's simple. Qualifying Oregon taxpayers can give up to $50 per year (or $100 for joint-filing couples) to a state political party or candidate and receive the full amount as credit subtracted from their Oregon state taxes when they file. If you are part of a joint-filing couple, the contribution can come from either member of the couple; the person claiming does not need to be the primary filer.
