NAPABA is a not-for-profit organization under Internal Revenue Code § 501(c)(6). Membership dues paid to NAPABA are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Membership dues may, however, be deductible as business expenses, subject to restrictions imposed as a result of lobbying activities. NAPABA estimates that 45% of all dues paid to NAPABA are used for lobbying expenditures and, accordingly, 45% of your dues are non-deductible for federal income tax purposes. If you have questions, we recommend that you consult with a tax advisor.
