Important Notes:
  • Only Business Members (including Sole Proprietor Business Members) are entitled to a free line listing in ARCSA’s Resource Guide.
  • Individual Members and Academic Members are not permitted to list or reference a business or business-like entity in their profile.
  • ARCSA reserves the right to reject membership applications from organizations and individuals that deliberately misstate their eligibility for certain membership categories.

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 nondeductible for income tax purposes.  Your dues payment to ARCSA as a business expense for the year 2017-2018 will be limited by the percentage of dues that went towards supporting lobbying activities, and only the remaining portion of your dues can be claimed as a business expense on your federal tax return.  For 2017, the percentage of non-deductible dues for lobbying is estimated to be 20% of dues.

 

In addition, contributions (including member dues) to ARCSA are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. However, they may be tax deductible under other provisions of the Internal Revenue Code.  Tax deductible contributions can be made to the ARCSA Foundation a 501(c)(3) organization.
