  • Governor Lieutenant Governor
  • Secretary of State
  • Auditor of State
  • Treasurer of State
  • Attorney General
  • Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court
  • Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court

The credit equals the amount contributed during the tax year up to $50 per return, or $100 if you are filing a joint return. Contributions to local candidates (such as city or county officials) or federal candidates (such as President or U.S. Senator) do not qualify for this credit. See R.C. 5747.29.
