How much of the dues are allocated to lobbying efforts?

$20 of active national membership dues are allocated towards expenses incurred by AANA for national lobbying activities. Such an amount is not deductible for federal income tax purposes. All AANA members are also members of individual state associations. Please be aware that your individual state association may or may not engage in reportable lobbying activities.

To the extent it does, your individual state association is responsible for informing you of what amount, if any, of your state membership dues are allocated to the expenses of lobbying activities at the state or local level. All such lobbying expenditures at the state or local level are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. We encourage you to contact your individual state association if you have any questions in this regard.
