2011 DUES CHECK-OFF LETTER
What is the Dues Check-Off Letter?
The dues check-off letter is a statement of dues deducted from your pay and remitted to the trust office on your behalf. It is not a bill, but a statement of dues check-off deducted from your checks and paid by you for the year.
Why do I need the Dues Check-Off Letter?
Some members are able to deduct the dues amount paid when filing their taxes.
When will the 2011 yearly Dues Check-Off Letter be mailed?
Mid February 2012.
Why is the letter mailed so late?
The yearly dues check-off statements are mailed as soon as the council receives the December hours reported to the trust offices. This usually occurs around the 12th of February.
Aren’t you supposed to have those letters mailed by January 31st?
No, the Dues Check-Off statements are mailed as a courtesy and we are not required to mail them by a specific date.
I worked in Washington and Oregon, will I get more than one check-off letter?
If you have contributed to more than one trust within our council, your dues check-off information will be combined on one letter.
Is the total on the letter my total dues paid for the year?
In order to calculate your total dues paid for the year add the amount on the dues check-off statement, the total over the counter dues paid to your local, and any dues paid directly to the regional council office. If you worked outside of our council, you may have additional check off money that was paid.
What if I don’t receive a letter, can I call and get the information?
Dues check-off information is given over the phone to the member only. Please have your social security or UBC ID number available when calling.
