Nondeductible Dues for 2021
Under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Congress changed federal tax law so that local associations can no longer include local lobbying expenses in the deductible portion of a member’s annual dues. Instead, these local lobbying expenses must now be calculated into the non-deductible dues amount, along with state and national dues.
As a result of this federal tax law change, the GMAR calculated the nondeductible portion of your 2021 local Membership Dues. The amount of your GMAR local Realtor and Affiliate dues is $1.00 per member; this amount is in addition to the amounts stated on the back of your WRA dues statement which specifies the non-deductibility of WRA and NAR dues.
