2019 Tax Status
Membership Investment/Dues payments to RWA are NOT deductible as charitable contributions for federal tax purposes. However, dues payments may be deductible as an “ordinary and necessary” business expense. The passage of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 (Clinton 1993 Tax Act) limits the deductibility of dues payment to associations. The portion of dues payment used for lobbying expenses by the association is no longer deductible for Federal Income Tax purposes. We have determined that the deductible portion of RWA dues for 2019 may be 90.00%.
