We estimate that only 96% of the membership dues may be tax-deductible as ordinary and necessary business expense. A portion of your dues may be used for lobbying. This reflects our estimate of the percentage of your payment that will be used for lobbying (4%) on subjects of interest to CAPA members.

CAPA membership dues are not refundable.
