Deductibility of Dues: OADC dues are not deductible as charitable contributions for the federal tax purposes. However, they may be tax deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses subject to restrictions imposed as a result of association lobbying in activities. OADC estimates that the nondeductible portion of your dues – the portion which is allocable to lobbying is thirty percent (30%).
