A Note About Taxes
Compliance with the Tax Reform Act of 1993 requires that the portion of dues attributable to lobbying and political activities at the state and federal levels of government be considered nondeductible for income tax purposes. This nondeductible portion must be disclosed to members on their dues invoice each year.

For 2014, 5% of ACAR dues or about $10 is non-deductible for the memberʼs income tax due to ACAR lobbying efforts. OAR computes that 11% or $14 to be non-deductible and NAR computes 42% or $50 of their dues to be non-deductible. NARʼs $35 Consumer Advertising Assessment does qualify as deductible dues. The total ACAR, OAR and NAR non-deductible portion of dues is $74.

Please consult your tax advisor on tax deductions from dues and voluntary donations. Please keep this form for tax information on nondeductible portions related to the dues.
