TAX Information:
In accordance with the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1993, we are required to notify you of the non-deductible portion of your dues related to benefits received. For 2013, CWLI has computed 20% to be non-deductible for members’ income tax purposes. CWLI is a charitable organization under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) and, as such, your allowable membership dues may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution depending on your personal tax situation. Please consult your tax advisor.

Would you like to be a Sustaining Member but need another payment option?

CWLI is now offering the opportunity to those joining at the Sustaining Level to have their dues automatically drafted each month. The monthly amount will be $21.00 and will continue unless the member decides to stop, at which time, membership in the organization would lapse. You must have or set up a PayPal account to take advantage of this payment option.
