Are NEA Dues deductible on my federal tax return?

A large portion of your dues is deductible. The Revenue Reconciliation Act of 1993 eliminated the individual income tax deduction for lobbying expenses paid or incurred as a part of membership dues on or after December 31, 1993. This change affects only those members who itemize deductions and meet the two percent requirement for additional miscellaneous deductions. Those members will not be able to deduct, as union dues, the 4.25% of PSEA's 2004-2005 dues attributable to lobbying. This is a total of $15.98. Please note: this change is effective for the 2005 income tax year, i.e., your tax return due April 2006. This information was obtained from the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA)
