A BILL
To amend section 5747.29 of the Revised Code to grant an income tax credit for contributions to school district tax levy campaign committees.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO:
Section 1.  That section 5747.29 of the Revised Code be amended to read as follows:
Sec. 5747.29.  A nonrefundable credit is allowed against the tax imposed by section 5747.02 of the Revised Code for contributions of money made to a school district levy campaign committee or to the campaign committee of candidates for any of the following public offices: governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, auditor of state, treasurer of state, attorney general, member of the state board of education, chief justice of the supreme court, justice of the supreme court, or member of the general assembly. The amount of the credit for a taxable year equals the lesser of the combined total contributions made during the taxable year by each taxpayer filing a return required to be filed under section 5747.08 of the Revised Code or the amount of fifty dollars, in the case of an individual return, or one hundred dollars, in the case of a joint return.
As used in this section:
(A) "Candidate" has the same meaning as in division (B)(3) of section 3517.01 of the Revised Code, but is limited to candidates for the public offices specified in this section.
(B) "Contribution" has the same meaning as in division (B)(5) of section 3517.01 of the Revised Code, but is limited to contributions of money only.
(C) "School district levy campaign committee" means a political action committee or other committee lawfully organized to support a tax levy ballot issue proposed by a school district in this state. "Political action committee" has the same meaning as in section 3517.01 of the Revised Code.
The taxpayer shall claim the credit in the order required under section 5747.98 of the Revised Code. The credit for a taxable year shall not exceed the tax otherwise due for that year after allowing for any other credits that precede the credit under this section in that order.
Section 2.  That existing section 5747.29 of the Revised Code is hereby repealed.
