Can I deduct my union dues for tax purposes?

Yes, the union dues can be deducted as long as your actual costs are higher than the flat rate of €540/year. You have the possibility to deduct its business expenses (with no ceiling) in relation to your salaried occupation.

If the business costs do not exceed the flat rate of 540 € then the contribution to the OGBL death fund, which is included in the union dues, is tax deductible. All you have to do is request a certificate from our Member Management Service, by phone at +352 54 05 45 928 or by e-mail at affiliation@ogbl.lu.
