Compliance with the Tax Reform Act of 1993, as amended by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, 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. As a 501(c)(6) organization, the Louisiana REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS® engage in “lobbying” activities as defined by the IRS. In addition, contributions (including member dues) are not tax deductible as charitable contributions. However, they may be tax deductible under other provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. The 2023 non-deductible percentage of member dues for the Louisiana REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS® is as follows:
|National Association of REALTORS®||34%||$51.00 dues of $150.00|
|Louisiana REALTORS®||35%||$54.00 dues of $155.00|
|New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS®||31%||$61.69 dues of $199.00|
This amount of dues cannot be deducted by REALTOR® members for tax purposes.
