APA Election Guidelines and campaign rules: www.psychiatry.org/election
Dues, contributions or gifts to district branches that are 501 (c)(6) organizations are not deductible as charitable
contributions for federal income tax purposes. However, they may be tax deductible as ordinary and necessary
business expenses. An amount equal to your DB dues multiplied by the percentage listed next to the tax status
is not deductible because it represents the estimated portion of dues used for lobbying expenses by the DB. The
nondeductible amount may include amounts attributable to the prior year’s lobbying expenses that exceeded
the estimate given for that year. Please contact your district branch with any specific questions.
