MEMBERSHIP DUES ARE DUE WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE APPLICATION IS PROCESSED. A PORTION OF YOUR DUES IS NOT DEDUCTIBLE FOR INCOME TAX PURPOSES. Certain provisions of the Tax Act regarding lobbying expenses limit the extent to which your national, state, and local dues can be deducted for income tax purposes. We have been advised by the National Association of REALTORS® that a percentage of each member's dues are declared not deductible for income tax purposes based upon the relationship of the association’s total dues income to the association's total lobbying expenditures. The percentages are: 38% of NAR $150 dues ($57.00), 7% of PAR $150 dues ($10.50) and 6% of R-BAR dues ($11.70). The $35 NAR Consumer Advertising assessment is including in your national dues. This assessment fee is not prorated and qualifies as deductible dues. We have been further advised that even if a member pays 2020 dues in full by the end of 2019, the portion of their 2020 dues used for lobbying expenses cannot be deducted on their 2019 income tax return. All membership dues and application fees are generally non-refundable. RPAC contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes as they are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The amount suggested is merely a guideline and you may contribute more or less. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and NAR or any of its state or local associations will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. 70% of each contribution is used by the state PAC to support state and local political candidates. Until your state PAC reaches its RPAC goal, 30% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C §30116; after the state PAC reaches its RPAC goal it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates. R-BAR Cares contributions are voluntary and fully deductible as charitable contributions
