MN Political Contribution Refund program

From the MN Department of Revenue website:

Your political contributions made between July 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017 to Minnesota political parties and candidates for Minnesota state offices may qualify for a refund.

You can request a Political Contribution Refund if you contribute money to qualified:

* candidates for the Minnesota Legislature;
* candidates for Minnesota governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general
* candidates for Minnesota secretary of state;
* candidates for Minnesota state auditor
* Minnesota political parties

You can only request one refund for each calendar year that you made contributions. Your request can include contributions you made to more than one candidate or party.

What contributions qualify for a refund?
Political contributions you made to eligible state candidates or political parties on or after July 1, 2017. Contributions made before that date do not qualify for a refund.

How much is the refund?
The refund is the amount of your contributions up to $50 for an individual or $100 for a married couple (if you file a joint Political Contribution Refund application).

How do I request a refund?
Complete 2017 Form PCR, Political Contribution Refund Application (to complete online) or 2017 Form PCR, Political Contribution Refund Application (to complete by hand). Send your completed form to the Minnesota Department of Revenue. You must also include copies of the receipts you received for contributions being claimed on your application.

We can only accept Form EP-3 receipts that you received from a qualified candidate or political party as proof of your
contribution(s).

When can I file?
You may apply for your refund at any time, but no later than April 16, 2018.
