IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE TNAMFT PAC
A Political Action Committee (PAC) enables nonprofits to have a voice in issues affecting the profession and contribute to federal candidates who understand issues of importance to LMFTs and their related communities. However, AAMFT policy prohibits TNAMFT from making contributions to any political candidate or campaign, therefore contributions to the TNAMFT PAC will be used for lobbying and related political advocacy purposes.
TNAMFT member contributions to the TNAMFT PAC are voluntary. Any donation amount is only a suggestion. Members may give more or less than the suggested amount. TNAMFT will not look upon any member with favor, or disfavor, because of the amount of the contribution or a decision to make no contribution.
RESTRICTIONS - PLEASE READ
The TNAMFT PAC does not accept cash. It accepts individual member contributions made only by personal check, personal credit card, or check or credit card in the name of a sole proprietorship. A contribution made by a corporate or partnership check or credit card will not be deposited to the PAC, but to a separate (non-PAC) account used to pay PAC administrative expenses. Accordingly, members are urged to make contributions by personal check or credit card, or by a check or credit card in the name of the sole proprietorship. The PAC can accept contributions aggregating up to $5,000 per calendar year from an individual member (including sole proprietorship).
Federal law provides the following:
1. Contributions by corporations (including professional corporations), foreign nationals, and federal contractors are prohibited.
2. Contributions to the TNAMFT PAC are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
3. Federal law requires the PAC to report the name, mailing address, occupation and employer for each individual whose contributions aggregate in excess of $200.00 in a calendar year.
4. TNAMFT dues may be deducted as a business expense but not as a charitable contribution.
40% of net state dues are not deductible in accordance with IRC Sec. 6033.
