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 2018 with dues at $120 per member, NAR computes 43 percent or $52 to be nondeductible for the member’s income tax purposes due to NAR lobbying efforts. Please note that thenentire $35 Consumer Advertising Campaign special assessment qualifies as fully deductible. GAR has estimated that $10.14 (10.34%) is the nondeductible portion of 2018 GAR dues. In addition, contributions (including member dues) to NAR are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. However, they may be tax deductible under other provisions of the Internal Revenue Code.
