Tax Deduction for Union Dues

Idea Category: Equity & Opportunity | Funding Source: American Rescue Plan

2023 Ideas Challenge Entry

Maryland State Delegate Jazz Lewis pushed for a tax deduction to taxpayers on any union dues that they might pay. This was a deduction that was provided before the Trump administration's passed tax reform bill stripped this reduction out of the code.


 Success will be measured in the amount of money that this puts back into the pockets of working families. The State of Maryland will see the results in the next tax year as they start to look at the number of people that take advantage of this deduction and the amount union members deduct.
