Did You Know? Your State Tax Refund Can Help Promote, and Preserve Local History!

 

History advocates have a convenient way to demonstrate their support for history and preservation in Ohio.

Next year, remember to donate a portion of your income tax refund to the Ohio History Connection (formerly, the Ohio Historical Society). The 2020 Ohio individual income tax forms provide a “tax check-off” option—a blank box on where those receiving a refund can designate an amount of it for donation.

The Ohio History Connection's Local History Office uses the revenue generated from the tax check-off to provide grants supporting history-related projects throughout Ohio.  These include repair or restoration of historic properties, care for historic objects and documents, education initiatives, public programs, and more across the entire state of Ohio.  

Check the History Connection's website at   www.ohiohistory.org for details.
