Non-Deductible Dues Info for Tax Purposes
The Tax Reform Act of 1993 made the portion of dues paid to organizations which are spent to lobby State and Federal governments nondeductible for income taxes and requires this to be disclosed to members.
 
For 2019 Dues paid in Fall 2018:
NAR computes 38% or $57.00 (of the $150.00 per member) to be nondeductible for the member’s income tax due to NAR’s lobbying efforts on behalf of its members. Note that the entire $35.00 portion of dues related to public awareness qualifies as deductible dues.
 
KYR computes 5.17% or $7.49 (of the $145.00 per member) to be nondeductible for the member’s income tax due to KAR’s lobbying efforts on behalf of its members.
