There’s no single reason why businesses join the Cincinnati Chamber. Read through all our benefits to help make your decision.
What are the dues? Are dues tax deductible?
Dues are based on the number of full-time employees in your company, with 4 exceptions: accounting firms, commercial banks, law firms, and hotels/motels. Federal tax law limits the deductibility of a portion of membership dues used for certain lobbying efforts. For 2023, 96% of your Chamber dues may be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense. Dues are not a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes. Contact your tax professional with any questions.
How do I figure out the number of professionals?
For accounting firms: Employees, owners and/or partners performing billable work, including CPA’s, CPA candidates, consultants and others. For law firms: Attorneys (including Associates and Partners), paralegals and others performing billable work. For questions, contact the Customer Focus Center at 513.579.3111.
