Tax season is here. We know, we know — it's the most exciting time of the year. While you're filling out your tax return forms, you can do something quick and easy to help boost Clean Elections.

On the Maine Income Tax Form, Line 1, check a box to designate $3 to the Maine Clean Election Fund. This helps to finance the election campaigns of qualifying Clean Election candidates. Learn more here.

If you're using tax assistance software to file your taxes, like TurboTax, it may prompt you with the Clean Elections question automatically, making it even easier to check yes!
