I had made donations to elections personally and and also made election donations on account of my firm. Are these expenses tax deductible in USA? Is there any difference between above said personal expense and business expense?

According to the IRS, any type of elections donation or contribution is not tax deductible. This includes contributing to a Political candidate, a campaign fund or even a newsletter. In your case, this would also include the money you donate through your job. If you decide to attend a political dinner, you can't deduct this from your taxes either.

Your donations if are not given to the tax deductible institutions, they are not going to give you deduction in the taxes. So the election being for profit activity. you can't give the donation like amount. Instead that is taken as an support to the party. And your money will be taxable for them and yourself. So there is no tax deduction in that case.
