ICBA dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes. However, dues may be deductible as a business expense, except for the 21.5 percent of 2022 ICBA dues – whenever paid – that are not deductible, according to the Internal Revenue Code, because of ICBA’s lobbying activities on behalf of its members.
