What is the PCR program?

The PCR program allows eligible MN voters to receive a refund of up to $50 ($100 per couple) for donations made to party units (like SD46 DFL) or candidates for state office (Governor, State Legislature) who have signed an agreement with the Minnesota Campaign Finance & Public Disclosure Board.

Do donations to Senate District 46 DFL qualify for PCR?

Yes, donations to SD46 DFL qualify for refunds under the PCR program! We are registered with the Campaign Finance Board.

Who can receive a PCR program refund?

Anyone ELIGIBLE to be a registered MN voter is eligible for a PCR refund:

    • You aren’t required to register to vote, you just have to be eligible – but we hope you’ll register and vote DFL!
    • You must live in MN for at least 20 days immediately before any 2020 statewide or local election in which you would be eligible to vote if you were registered.
    • Contributions must be made between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020.

What do I do next? How does it work?

    • Donate to SD46 DFL by December 31, 2020. You can simply donate online now by clicking here, or send us a check payable to “DFL Senate District 46”

    • You’ll receive a receipt from SD46 in about two weeks! Just allow some time for payment processing and mailing.
    • Fill out the easy Political Contribution Refund Application, attach your receipt, and send it to the MN Department of Revenue (address is on the form)
    • Mail the refund application by April 15, 2021 (no need to wait, mail anytime). Do NOT put it in the same envelope as your tax return – it will just delay your refund.
