However, they may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses subject to restrictions imposed as a result of VSCA's lobbying activities defined by the Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993. VSCA estimates that the nondeductible portion of your 2014 dues (the portion that is devoted to lobbying)
is 29 percent. 
Almost 1/3 of your membership dues go to lobbying for school counselors in Richmond with the legislators, DOE, and State Board of Education!!!
