Contributions are not tax deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. California Election Law requires political committees to report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer for each individual.
The California Political Reform Act (Proposition 34) places limits on contributions to candidates for state office and imposes certain prohibitions. Contributions may be received from individuals, business entities, organizations, and political action committees up to $4,100. A married couple may contribute $8,200 by either sending individually signed checks or by both signing one check from a joint checking account. Contributions from foreign nationals are prohibited, unless an individual is lawfully admitted (green card) for permanent residence in the United States.
