Union Dues Tax Deduction

Share This

CUB president Antoinette Ryan-Johnson led a delegation of AFT-Maryland members and leaders in Annapolis to testify on a bill that would allow union members to write off their union dues on state income taxes. This bill would increase the number of union members in the face of the anti-worker Supreme Court Janus decision. President Ryan-Johnson lauded this bill for reaching out to workers who are striving to make ends meet.

She was joined by MPEC President Jerry Smith and BTU member Nick McDaniels as they testified on the impact such a bill would have on the lives of members. State Sen. Guy Guzzone was the sponsor of the bill and is working to get support for it and passage of it in the Senate. Presidents Ryan-Johnson and Smith already testified in support of the House version of this bill that was sponsored by Delegate Jazz Lewis.
