Federal tax law prohibits the deductions of lobbying expenses for federal income tax purposes. Organizations like WVBA which assess member dues are required by law to notify their members of the portion of their dues attributable to lobbying and therefore non-deductible on your federal tax return. For the year March 1, 2018 through February 28, 2019, it is estimated that 15% of your dues will be attributable to lobbying as defined by the IRS. Contributions to WVBA are not charitable contributions; however, they may be deductible as a legitimate business expense.
