Please Note:  Annual Dues may be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense for federal income tax purposes.  NADCL estimates that 1% of your total membership dues are allocable to lobbying activities of the Association and therefore not deductible for income tax purposes as ordinary and necessary business expense.  $90 of annual dues applies to a one-year subscription to The Champion.  Contributions to the Foundation for Criminal Justice are fully tax-deductible.
