IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING DUES:
501(c)(6) Association Lobbying and Deductibility of Members’ Dues
The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 provides that a member’s dues to a 501(c)(6) professional association are not deductible as business expenses to the extent of that association’s expenditures for lobbying (as compared to the association’s overall expenditures). For purposes of this Act, lobbying expenditures include not only communications with legislators and employees of legislative bodies, but also certain high level federal government officials. The definition of lobbying is also expanded to include the professional association’s research, preparation, planning and coordination to support attempts to influence legislation.
Notice to the Member
The 1993 Act requires professional associations to notify their members of the percentage of their dues are non-deductible as business expenses because of the association’s anticipated lobbying expenditures. In addition, the professional association must allocate all expenditures for federal and state lobbying against dues and similar income received by the association. 100% of CSAAI member dues are NON-DEDUCTIBLE.
