New members pay dues on a pro-rated plan, depending on when they become members of the Association. A Designated REALTOR® who is a GFWAR member is responsible for all licensees who choose not to join GFWAR and will be assessed in accordance with GFWAR Bylaws for all agents who do not become members of GFWAR.
For affiliate members, a designated affiliate must be named for each office. Other representatives within an office who wish to join GFWAR are then considered additional affiliates and charged $75.
In addition, an application fee is required to join GFWAR. The cost of this fee varies, depending upon whether the applicant has been a member of GFWAR or another association within the last 35 months.
The following amounts for certain lobbying and political expenditures are not deductible for income tax purposes: 38% of NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR) dues, 16% of Texas REALTORS® dues, 4% of local association dues, and the $30 assessment by Texas REALTORS® for the Issues Mobilization/Political Advocacy Fund (IMPAF). The remaining dues and assessment are not tax deductible as charitable contributions but may be tax deductible under other provisions of the Internal Revenue Code.
Contributions to the Texas Association of REALTORS® Political Action Committee (TREPAC) and the Texas Association of REALTORS® Federal Political Action Committee (TAR FedPAC)—which makes contributions to the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC)—are not tax deductible. Such contributions are voluntary and may be used for political purposes. The amount indicated 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®, Texas REALTORS®, and its local associations will not favor or disadvantage anyone because of the amount contributed. Until the RPAC annual goal is met, 70% of an individual’s contribution goes to TREPAC and may be used to support state and local candidates; the remaining 30% is sent to TAR FedPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C. 30116. After the RPAC annual goal is met, 100% of an individual’s contribution goes to TREPAC and may be used to support state and local candidates. You may contact the Texas REALTORS® political committee administrator at 800-873-9155 to obtain information about your contributions.
