Business Expense 

Dues paid to The Employers’ Association are not deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes. Dues are considered an ordinary and necessary business expense or deducted under other provisions of the IRS Code as recommended by your accountant. 

Cancellation Requirement 

Membership is automatically renewed annually for all members in good standing. To cancel membership, TEA must receive written notification. Any unpaid charges must be paid prior to a membership cancellation. Cancellations received will take effect at the end of the quarter in which the notice was received. The member is responsible for payment of all membership dues/service invoices issued to that point. 

Membership in The Employers’ Association is held by the organization as a benefit for all employees. 
Membership is not held by an individual.
