Paying Your Dues? Put Money Back in Your Pocket!

When you pay your CABR Dues Invoice, you can make an investment in your own business and your ability to earn a living. How? By contributing to RPAC – the REALTORS® Political Action Committee.

RPAC works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year to protect your interests and those of private property owners.
Preservation of the Mortgage Interest Deduction saves the “average” REALTOR® $5,400 each year! But…you’re not “average.” By defeating the expansion of Ohio’s sales tax to include commissions twice, the “average” REALTOR® saved roughly $2,000! Those two issues alone saved you $7,400!

The default RPAC contribution amount on your Dues Invoice is only $25. With $7,400 in savings for an “average” REALTOR®, surely, you’ll agree that RPAC deserves more than an “average” investment amount. RPAC needs your support to maintain its ability to protect your interests and those of your clients. RPAC is YOUR Best Investment in Real Estate!

Contributions are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. You may contribute more or less than the suggested amount. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS or any of its state or local associations will not favor or disfavor any members because of the amount contributed. 50% of each contribution is used by the Ohio Association of REALTORS® (OAR) RPAC to support state and local political candidates. Until OAR’s RPAC reaches its RPAC goal, 30% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 2 U.S.C.441a. After OAR RPAC reaches its RPAC goal, it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates.
