Dues are not deductible as charitable contributions.  A portion of your membership dues was used for lobbying activities and, as such, are not deductible.  At the end of our fiscal year, we calculate the percentage.

We calculate the deductible portion of 2021 membership dues is 73% of actual dues paid

The amount of nondeductible membership dues for 2021 is 27%.
