Political Contribution Refund (PCR) Program

The Political Contribution Refund (PCR) program has been reinstated for 2021.

What is the PCR?

The PCR is a program where any eligible MN voter may contribute up to $50 (or $100 per couple), once a calendar year, to a party unit or candidate for a state office (Governor, State Legislature), and have their contribution refunded by the MN Department of Revenue. Contributions made on or after January 1, 2021 qualify for a refund under the program. Donations must be made by December 31, 2021.

Who qualifies for the PCR?

Any individual qualifies if they are an eligible MN voter. 

Is Senate District 35 a qualified organization for PCR?

Yes, SD35 qualifies. You will be refunded up to $50 for an individual (or $100 per coupon) for donations you make to SD35 Republicans.

What do I do next?

  • Donate $50 to SD35 Republicans (or with your spouse donate $100!). You can donate online or by check (payable to ‘SD35 Republicans’). Our mailing address is SD35 Republicans, 7020 158th Ln NW, Ramsey, MN 55303.
  • Within a couple weeks after you donate, you will receive a receipt and a Political Contribution Refund Application.
  • Once you have your receipt, fill out the application and send it to Minnesota Department of Revenue, Political Contribution Refund, St. Paul, MN 55146-1800.
