Question
Ohio Contributions

Answer

A donation will reduce the amount of the refund that you are due. If you decide to donate, this decision is final. You cannot change your mind and later ask for your donations to be refunded. If you do not want to donate, do not enter an amount on Ohio IT 1040, lines 26a-f.

Because your tax return is confidential, the department cannot release your name to the fund administrators, but the administrators extend appreciation to those who donate. Your donation may be tax-deductible on a future federal income tax return.

Breast and Cervical Cancer Project – Contributions made to the project are used to provide free breast and cervical cancer screening, diagnostic and outreach/case management services to uninsured and underinsured Ohio women. The project is administered by the Ohio Department of Health and is operated through 11 regional agencies, which enroll women in the program and schedule them for services with clinical providers in the agency's service area. If you do not have an overpayment on your Ohio IT 1040, but you want to donate to provide grants for free breast and cervical cancer screening, you may do so by writing a check payable to "Ohio Treasurer of State" or "Ohio Department of Health" and mailing it to:
