CDSA Tax Information

Chicago DSA is affiliated with the national Democratic Socialists of America but is separately incorporated. Anyone paying national membership dues in the Chicago area is automatically a member of the Chicago DSA chapter. Chicago DSA is incorporated as an Illinois non-profit corporation and, like DSA nationally, has 501(c)4 status from the IRS. This means we are tax-exempt, but contributions are not tax deductible. It also means our electoral participation is limited in much the same way as participation by labor unions is limited.
