The Minnesota Political Contribution Refund Program refunds the first $50 per person/$100 per couple.

Contributions are not deductible as a charitable contribution for Federal Income Tax purposes.
Contributions are prohibited from Corporations, Limited Liability Companies, and Foreign Nationals.
It is illegal for any person to reimburse another for making a contribution to a political campaign.
Minnesota law allows donations up to $1000 per person per two-year election period. Individual donations totaling $20 or more per two-year election period require Political Committees to report the name, address, date and amount of the contribution; and, if a Registered donor, their Registration Number. Individual donations totaling over $200 to $1000 per two-year election period require the same information plus the donor’s employer or, if self-employed, the donor’s occupation.
