Non-Deductible ETA Dues

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act extended the deduction disallowance under I.R.C. section 162(e) that previously only applied to federal lobbying expenses to state and local lobbying costs as well. Expenses associated with other common government affairs activities, such as monitoring legislation, attempts to influence rules and regulations, relationship building and reputational lobbying at the local government level are unaffected, and continue to be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses.

Consequently, the non-deductible portion of ETA’s 2018 dues is increased to 15% from 13%. 15% represents the cost of ETA’s federal, state, and local lobbying efforts. For more information, please contact membership@electran.org.
