Is a state park pass tax deductible?

Unfortunately, the purchase of a state park pass is not tax deductible. Unlike a donation to the state park which is tax deductible, when you purchase a state park pass you are receiving a benefit in return (access to the state parks). Because you receive this benefit, the state park pass is not tax deductible on your taxes.
