Beginning with tax year 2019, taxpayers may no longer designate $1 of their tax liability to go to the Ohio Political Party Fund.
The Ohio General Assembly established this fund to support public financing of Ohio political parties. Monies from this fund may only be used for administrative costs associated with party headquarters and party fund-raising drives, organization of voter registration and get-out-the-vote campaigns not related to any particular candidate or election.
If your filing status is single or head of household, married filing separately or qualifying widow(er) and your tax is $1 or more, you may choose to have $1 go to this fund by selecting “Yes”. If your filing status is married filing jointly and your tax is $2 or more, each of you may choose to have $1 go to this fund by selecting “Yes”.
Selecting "Yes" will neither increase the tax due nor reduce the refund shown on your return.
