IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Dues payments to LCBA are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.  However, dues payment may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expense, subject to an exclusion for lobby activity.  Because a portion of your dues is used for lobbying by NAHB and PBA, $86.75 is not deductible for income tax purposes for 2016.  Of the amount remitted for annual dues, $15 is for a subscription for one year to the BUILDER magazine, published monthly.  This amount cannot be deducted from the total dues amount.

Would you like to know how you can save and/or make money from your LCBA membership?  If the answer to that question is yes (Why wouldn’t it be?), I will be glad to review the member benefits individually with you and help you decide what works best for you and your business.  I will even help you complete the paperwork if there is any.  This can be done in person or via phone.  If you would like to meet in person, I will work with your schedule and meet during the day or evening at whatever location works for you!  For more information, please contact me at 724-658-4432 or email me at lawrencecountybuilders@yahoo.com
