TOTAL DUES BREAKDOWN
National Association of REALTORS®
NAR dues are $150. This amount increased for 2019 after a $30 increase in NAR dues that was implemented in 2018 by the NAR Board of Directors. The NAR Consumer Advertising Campaign special assessment from NAR, which is separate from dues, remains at $35, making the total due for the NAR portion of 2019 REALTOR® dues and fees $185. In accordance with the disclosure requirements of IRS Code Sec. 6033(e), the National Association of REALTORS® has determined that $57.00 of the $150.00 is nondeductible in income tax purposes because of lobbying activities on behalf of members.
The Tennessee REALTORS® portion of dues remains $105 for 2019. The amount designated for Issues Mobilization is $15, and is separate from the dues amount. The total amount for the Tennessee REALTORS® portion of 2019 REALTOR® dues and fees is $120. In accordance with the disclosure requirements of IRS Code Sec. 6033(e), Tennessee REALTORS® has determined that $6.00 of the $105.00 is nondeductible in income tax purposes because of lobbying activities on behalf of members.

Suggested RPAC Contribution
On your yearly membership renewal, you’ll find a separate line item for a suggested RPAC contribution. RPAC (REALTORS Political Action Committee) is the voice of REALTORS® on Capitol Hill and has been promoting the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States since 1969. RPAC is neither Republican, Democratic or Independent, but is for the REALTOR® party. The association suggests that each broker member invest a minimum of $50 and each REALTOR® member invest a minimum of $25. This is not required, but is a suggested contribution. To edit the RPAC contribution amount, click the Edit button.
RPAC contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The amount suggested is merely a guideline and you may contribute more or less than the suggested amount. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS® or any of its state associations and local boards will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. The Greater Nashville REALTORS® PAC Trustees will determine annually an amount which will be forwarded to the state PAC. Greater Nashville REALTORS® PAC will retain all contributions received above that amount for use in the Middle Tennessee region; exceptions will be made in the case of "Major Investors". Of the funds forwarded to the state PAC, 70% of each contribution is used by your 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 2 U.S.C. 441a; after the state PAC reaches its RPAC goal, it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates.
