501(c)(6) Status: New Mexico Post Alliance is an industry association that has been granted exemption from income tax under Section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. NMPA dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes. However, portions of dues paid not used for NMPA lobbying may be deductible as a business expense. NMPA estimates that 10% of your dues may be used for lobbying efforts on behalf of its members and that portion is therefore not deductible. Check with your tax adviser concerning deductibility of dues in your case.
