Tax Deduction Recognition

Donations to political campaigns are not tax deductible.

Donations to tax exempt charitable entities (501(c)(3) organizations) are generally deductible as charitable contributions, provided certain requirements are met and no benefits are received. VoterLabs cannot be responsible for your treatment of these donations on your tax returns. The recipient of the donation should provide you verification regarding your gift and the portion of that gift that is eligible for tax deduction. In no event shall VoterLabs provide such information or be responsible for advising you as to the deductibility of your donation.

Refund policy

VoterLabs does everything we can to accommodate requests for refunds. We do our best to honor refunds requested for reasons such as input error, when a contributor accidentally donates twice or enters the wrong donation amount. VoterLabs will not consider refunds for other reasons such as a change in political opinion, the loss of an election, or the cancellation of an event. VoterLabs reserves the right to refuse a refund request for these or other reasons. All refund requests are subject to the availability of the contribution funds. Because VoterLabs contributions are processed immediately, accepts multiple payment methods, and processes contributions through various payment channels, VoterLabs can only refund a contribution if we can recover through the applicable payment channel. For this reason, it is very important that you make your request for a refund as soon after contributing as possible. When possible, refunds issued by VoterLabs will be credited back to payment method used to make the contribution. In all cases where we are not able to accommodate a refund request, we will be happy to refer you to the recipient of your contribution so that you may request a refund directly from them. If you are with a campaign, committee, or social welfare organization that has received a contribution through VoterLabs and would like to request that we refund that contribution, please contact us at support@VoterLabs and we will do our best to assist you.
