Are Dues Tax Deductible?

Efficiency First is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(6) trade association that is actively engaged in lobbying federal, state and local governments on behalf of America's Home Performance workforce. Amounts paid to the association are not deductible as charitable contributions, but may be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense, subject to exclusion for lobbying activity. Because a portion of your dues is used for lobbying (41 percent in 2011), that percentage is not deductible for income tax purposes. Therefore, 59 percent of your dues payment may be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense. It is important to check with your accountant, lawyer or tax professional to seek specific advice. Efficiency First does not provide legal or accounting advice.
