Be a SPAAR Hero in 2018

SPAAR is now accepting SPAAR Hero applications for the new year.

SPAAR Heroes are members who are involved in their communities in many ways. If you or someone you know deserve to be recognized as a SPAAR Hero, we want to hear from you!

The recognition program awards one recipient each month for his or her community involvement, which includes $250 to donate to the cause or organization he or she supports.

If you know someone who should be a SPAAR Hero, yourself included (self nominations are welcome!), please email Joe McKinley at jmckinley@spaar.com.
Understanding tax changes
The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) worked throughout the tax reform process to preserve a number of existing tax benefits of homeownership and real estate investment, as well to ensure as many real estate professionals as possible would benefit from proposed tax cuts.

To best understand how the new 20 percent income deduction works, two tax pros explain how the new tax reform law impacts members' treatment of business income; the law also creates a 20 percent business income deduction that members can take as independent contractors  (see sharable  video here). Income and other limits apply. Learn more here, along with much more information. Source: NAR
