Life Members: MSBA recognizes member attorneys who have practiced for 50 years or more. Life Members are not assessed membership dues.
About Your Dues: Membership dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes, but may be deductible in part as a business expense. The MSBA estimates 4.92% of your total membership dues are allocable to lobbying activities of the Association, and therefore are not deductible for income tax purposes as ordinary and necessary business expenses.
