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.
43% for national, 15% for state, and 4% for local. Additionally, the $30 Issues Mobilization/Political Advocacy assessment is not deductible for income tax purposes. Please note that the entire NAR $35 Public Awareness Campaign special assessment qualifies as fully deductible. Contributions to the Texas Association of REALTORS® Political Action Committee (TREPAC), the Texas Association of REALTORS® Federal Political Action Committee (TAR FedPAC), and the REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC) are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Contributions to the TREPAC, TAR FedPAC, and RPAC 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. The Association will not favor or disadvantage anyone by reason of the amount of their contribution, and you may refuse to contribute without reprisal by the Association. Your contribution is split between TREPAC and TAR FedPAC. Contact the TREPAC administrator at 800-873-9155 for information about the percentages of your contribution provided to TREPAC and to TAR FedPAC. The TAR FedPAC portion is used to support federal candidates—via contributions by TAR FedPAC to RPAC—and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C. § 30116.
For new members who pay a prorated amount of the NAR $120 dues, 43% of that prorated portion would be nondeductible. For prorated TAR dues of $117, 15% is non-deductible; and for prorated GFWAR dues of $141, 4% is non-deductible.
