APWA membership dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution but may be deductible as an ordinary business expense, subject to IRS limits. APWA does not designate the use of membership dues for lobbying or advocacy efforts, however eight percent (8%) of our total operating budget is allocated towards advocacy-related programs, including staff salaries. Please consult your tax professional with regards to eligible ordinary business expenses.
