Political contributions are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal and state income tax purposes. Dues payments & assessments (Local Association, C.A.R., and NAR) and contributions to “REALTOR® Action Fund” are not tax deductible as charitable contributions at the Federal level. Contributions to the C.A.R. Housing Affordability Fund are charitable and tax deductible to the extent allowable under both Federal and State law. Payments, excluding the portion of dues used for lobbying activities and REALTOR® Action Fund, may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses. Please consult your tax professional.

* The REALTOR® Action Assessment ($49 of the $184) will automatically be deposited into CREPAC and/or CREIEC and/or used for other political purposes. Those wishing to have their assessment entirely applied for more general political purposes may specify in writing, and it will be redirected to a different account instead of one of the dedicated California real estate PACs (CREPAC or CREIEC). Designated REALTORS® must pay the $49 REALTOR® Action Assessment for each licensee of that DR (as shown in the nonmember count), and the payment will be treated in the same manner as the REALTOR® Action Assessment for members.

** Make a difference by helping promote REALTOR® interests through the political process and designate an additional $49 or more to the REALTOR® Action Fund. $49 is the suggested additional voluntary contribution but you may give more, or less, or nothing at all. See additional information on the political contribution structure and allocation HERE.
