What figures are used to determine PMP?
Each local League’s official membership count is the basis for calculating PMP. Your League’s official membership count is established on February 1 of each year on the summary sheet for your League on the LWVUS database. These are the same figures that LWVUS uses to calculate PMP. The summary sheet membership count is based on the updates and changes you make to the LWVUS online membership database through January 31. See Updating Your Membership for more information on updating your online database.
What dates does PMP apply to?
The February 1 count is used to calculate the following fiscal year’s PMP, which runs from July to June. For example, your
Feb. 1, 2015 membership count will determine the amount of PMP you will owe LWVOR (and LWVUS) for the July 1, 2015 – June 31, 2016 fiscal year. One-quarter of your LWVOR PMP, is due each quarter on July 1, October 1, January 1, and April 1. Your use of the PMP Quarterly Payment Form will assist in keeping accurate records of your payments.
How is PMP calculated?
Your LWVOR PMP obligation is $30.50 per individual or first household member and $15.25 per second household member and student. You are not charged for those who have been members for 50 years or more.
Can PMP be paid with EF donations?
You may pay up to 25% of your LWVOR PMP to the LWVOR Education Fund instead of directly to LWVOR, thus giving some of your members or donors the benefit of an income tax deduction. The payment of such “in-lieu PMP” should be made by a check from the member or donor (not from your League) payable to LWVOREF and forwarded by you to the State office or by a transfer from your Local League Education Fund. See Guidelines for Local League Grant Program and the Education Fund Contribution Form for more information.
