NAR Dues Not Deductible for Income Tax Purposes

Contributions to RPAC are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Contributions are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The amounts indicated are merely guidelines and you may contribute more or less than the suggested amounts. The National Association of REALTORS® and its state and local associations will not favor or disadvantage any member because of the amount contributed or a decision not to contribute.   You may refuse to contribute without reprisal. Your contribution is split between National RPAC and the State PAC in your state. The National RPAC portion is used to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C. 30116.  For 2017, with dues at $120 per member, NAR computes 42 percent or $50 to be nondeductible for the member's income tax purposes due to NAR lobbying efforts. Please note that the entire $35 Consumer Advertising Campaign special assessment qualifies as fully deductible. The portion of dues paid that is spent to lobby the State and Federal governments is not deductible for income tax purposes. GAR has estimated that $13.82 (14.10%) is the nondeductible portion of 2017 GAR dues. 

Compliance with the Tax Reform Act of 1993 requires that the portion of dues attributable to lobbying and political activities at the State and Federal levels of government be considered nondeductible for income tax purposes. This nondeductible portion must be disclosed to members on their dues invoice each year.

All REALTOR® Members are required to complete a REALTOR® Code of Ethics course during the four year period that ends December 31, 2018. Failure to complete the course by that date will result in suspension until course completion, regardless of the status of dues payment. Suspension of services includes all board, state association and NAR dues-based services.
