The little line on your taxes that can make a big difference

It’s that time of the year again. While there isn’t much we can do to make filing your taxes less painful, there is something you can do to feel good about filing.

It’s called the $3 Checkoff and it allows you to contribute a portion of your state refund to the political party of your choice. Simply write in “507” in line “68” and donate $3 (or $6 for joint filers) to support the Oregon Working Families Party.

The Oregon Working Families Party fights for working families — not Wall Street banks or multinational corporations. We helped pass the “Pay It Forward” study bill to tackle student debt, ran field campaigns to ensure paid sick days in Portland and Eugene, and defeated right-wing Democrat, Mike Schaufler, in the state legislature.

We make sure to only nominate candidates for office who actively support progressive issues. And after Election Day, we make sure to hold them accountable for their promises by keeping a legislative scorecard on the legislative issues that matter most to hard working Oregonians.

Help us continue our work for a better Oregon for working families. Write in “507” in line “68” of your Form 40 to support the Oregon Working Families Party.
