What political contributions can I deduct on my Montana tax return?

These contributions are limited to a total of $100 for yourself and, if married, a total of $100 for your spouse. To qualify for this deduction, your contribution of money has to be made to:

  • an individual who is a candidate for nomination or election to any federal, state or local public office in a primary, general or special election;
  • a committee, association or organization set up to campaign for the nomination or election to any federal, state or local public office in a primary, general or special election;
