Dues

FAQs About Your Dues

Membership renewals were sent the beginning of May. For your convenience, here are some frequently asked questions regarding dues payments.

When is my payment due?

Dues are payable upon receipt and are subject to multiple billing fees. Due to the high costs associated with multiple printings and mailings, after July 1, a second invoice will be issued and a $10 fee applied. After August 1, a third invoice will be issued and an additional $10 fee applied.

What should I do if my billing class is incorrect?

Your billing class is based upon your status as of March 31, 2018. If your circumstances changed after that date, it will be reflected in next year’s dues invoice. If your circumstances changed prior to March 31, please contact Liz Frazza at 860-258-0220 or lizf@ctcpas.org.

Can I pay dues for everyone at my firm at once?

Yes! You can sign up to receive a single “firm invoice” listing all members at your firm. To learn more or sign up, contact Liz Frazza at 860-258-0220 or lizf@ctcpas.org. You can also pay for multiple members online at www.ctcpas.org/dues by selecting “I want to renew membership for multiple people.” You can also simply mail one check for the firm; please be sure you include all of the individual invoices.

Can I pay a reduced rate if I’m retired?

Retired members are eligible to pay a lower dues rate. Billing codes are based on your status as of March 31, 2018. If you retired before that date, please contact Liz Frazza at 860-258-0220 or lizf@ctcpas.org and she will update your status and reduce your dues amount. If you are semi-retired (for example, only working during tax season), you must still pay the regular member rate. You must be fully retired from all employment to pay the retired rate.

Are my dues tax-deductible?

CTCPA dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution but may be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense. However, a portion of dues (10 percent for the year ending March 31, 2019) is not deductible to the extent that the CTCPA engages in lobbying.

What should I do if I no longer wish to remain a member?

We’d love to talk with you first and see if we can help you discover more value in your membership. Please call Liz at 860-258-0220. If you don’t want to be a member anymore, you do need to mail or email (to lizf@ctcpas.org) a letter of resignation. It must be received no later than August 31, 2018 in order for you to resign in good standing.
