For commercial radio and television stations/groups, dues are determined by average annual revenue over the previous two years. All revenue calculations include trade-outs, non-broadcast revenue, and agency/other sales commissions. The revenue calculations aggregate all stations owned by the same company in a single market.

Under federal law a business may deduct only the portion of dues to a trade organization, which is not directly related to its lobbying/government relations effort. The ABA has determined that not more than 20% of all dues revenues is vested into its lobbying effort. Therefore you may deduct 80% of your dues amount as an ordinary business deduction.  ABA Federal Tax ID # 86-0264750
