I have a tax question about union dues deduction on my taxes. Can I deduct union dues on my tax return?
No, employees can’t take a union dues deduction on their return. Prior to 2018, an employee who paid union dues prior may have been able to deduct them as unreimbursed employee business expenses, if the total of the dues plus certain miscellaneous itemized expenses reached a certain level. The employee then deducted the dues if the employee was able to itemize deductions.
Can I Deduct Union Dues Now?
However, if the taxpayer is self-employed and pays union dues, those dues are deductible as a business expense.
Also, even though unreimbursed employee expenses are no longer deductible on the federal return, some states, such as Minnesota and Pennsylvania, may allow the deduction on the state tax return.
