Because AAJ is incorporated as a not-for-profit 501(c)(6) organization, dues and contributions paid to the American Association for Justice (AAJ) are not deductible as charitable contributions for income tax purposes. 

American Association for Justice and ATLA LogosHowever, they may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses subject to restrictions imposed as a result of AAJ’s Lobbying activities. In 2020, AAJ estimates that the portion of dues, fees, and other similar amounts that it expects to receive are allocable to AAJ’s lobbying expenditures is 34%. Accordingly, 66% of fees, dues, and contributions to AAJ may be deducted as ordinary and necessary business expenses. Members should consult their tax advisor to confirm their deductions.
