Occupation Information
 
If you contribute more than $100 in a calendar year to us, we must also obtain your (1) address and (2) occupation. The law defines "occupation" as:
  1. The nature of an individual's principal business; and
     
  2. If the individual is employed by another person, the business name and address, by city and state, of the employer.
According to the Secretary of State, you are "not employed" if you are a student, retired, a volunteer, or a "homemaker." These folks should write "not employed" on the line for occupational information. Here is more information on what are considered "occupations."  If you are self-employed, then your employer is "self."
 
You may have already provided that information on the PayPal form.  If not, please email it to us at bank@progparty.org and let us know.

Oregon Political Tax Credit
 
If you are an individual with taxable income of $1,000 or more, you may give up to $50 to political campaigns and get it all back (every dollar) as a state income tax credit. A couple filing a joint return can give $100 and get it all back, if your taxable income is at least $2,000. Those with lower incomes can get back amounts contributed, up to their total state income tax withheld or otherwise paid. Here is official government information about the: Oregon Political Tax Credit.  It has not been updated since 2007 but is still accurate.
