Tax Deductions for Association Dues
Annual membership dues are tax-deductible for most members as an ordinary and necessary business expense but ARE NOT deductible as charitable contributions. A portion of your dues will pay for your subscriptions to Insulation Outlook magazine and NIA News.

Compliance with the Tax Reform Act of 1993 requires that the portion of dues attributable to lobbying and political activities at the state and federal levels of government be considered non-deductible for income tax purposes. This non-deductible portion must be disclosed to members on their dues invoice each year. For 2016, 0.95% of NIA dues is projected to be allocated to lobbying and is non-deductible for federal income tax purposes as an ordinary and necessary business expense.
