STEP 11: POLITICAL CHECKOFF.

You may assign $1.50 of your Iowa tax to a specified political party or to the Iowa Election Campaign Fund to be distributed among the qualifying political parties.

A qualified political party is one whose candidate for President received at least 2% of the total vote cast in the last general election.

A husband and wife may each assign $1.50 to the party of his or her choice regardless of the filing status of the return.

This does not reduce your refund or increase your amount due. This checkoff is an optional feature and is not required to process your return.

This year's qualified political parties are:

  • Republican Party
  • Democratic Party
  • Campaign Fund (split between the two parties)
