GSCA dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes, but may be deductible as a business expense. GSCA estimates that 55% of your dues are not deductible because of GSCA's lobbying efforts on behalf of its members. Please consult your tax advisor with any questions.
