PT-PAC is a separate segregated fund established by APTA and is a federally registered political action committee. The contributions the PT-PAC receives are used to support federal candidates and committees who support physical therapy issues. Contributions to PT-PAC by APTA members are voluntary and any person has the right to refuse to contribute without reprisal. The contribution guidelines are merely suggestions and a person may contribute more, less or not at all without concern of favor or disadvantage by APTA. Corporate donations will not be used by PT-PAC for contributions but will be used exclusively to pay for the administrative and operating expenses of PT-PAC. Contributions are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal tax purposes. Federal law requires PT-PAC to request the name, address, occupation, and employer for each person whose contributions exceed two hundred dollars ($200.00) in a calendar year.
