Tax Information
AANP membership dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes but may be deductible as a business expense. AANP estimates that 5 percent of your dues are not deductible because of AANP lobbying activities on behalf of its members. AANP membership dues are non-refundable.
