ABSTRACT
The author comments on the U.S. Presidential Funding Tax Checkoff. It is noted that there is a box in the federal tax forms that taxpayers can check to designate 3 U.S. dollars to a public fund for financing presidential campaigns. He explains that this was the result of the anti-corruption reforms in the wake of the Watergate scandals in 1974. He asserts that it has become outdated in recent years because the growing costs of presidential campaign has outstripped the public funds, but he argues that it needs to be repaired rather than to be repealed.
