UTLA DUES

The Build the Future, Fund the Fight initiative that was passed by UTLA members in February 2016 authorized an increase in UTLA monthly dues along with a dual-merger with NEA and AFT affiliates. This means that members now have dual membership in both the NEA and AFT.

A portion of your UTLA dues deducted each pay period goes to our affiliates.

 

CONSTITUTIONAL PASS THROUGH

Because there is a constitutional pass-through agreement, if at any time the affiliates dues increase, these fees will be passed along to the member.

 

AFFILIATE DUES (Premium Dues)

The governing bodies of our affiliates approved increases in their dues in late 2017, which means these increases will affect your monthly UTLA membership dues.

**2018 NEW TAX LAW **

UNION DUES ARE NO LONGER TAX DEDUCTIBLE

For tax years 2018 through 2025, union dues are no longer deductible on your federal income tax return, even if itemized deductions are taken. This is a result of the tax reform bill signed into law on December 22, 2017. Consult your tax advisor to confirm.

...

2017 TAX DEDUCTION

The following are deductions for union dues that you might be qualified to make on your federal income tax return. These figures are meant as a guideline and may not reflect the actual deductions that were taken (for example, if you did not work the full year or you switched job classifications, these numbers may not reflect your deductions). Always consult your tax adviser before taking any of these deductions.
