*Members can pay their dues in installments, as long as their dues are paid in full by the due date. GHAR will not automate payments, so members you are responsible for calling the GHAR office to make them. There is no fee or penalty for paying in installments, as long as the dues are paid in full by the due date.
Contact the Association at (717) 364-3200.
*RPAC contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The amount suggested is merely a guideline and you may contribute more or less than the suggested amount. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and NAR or any of its state associations or local boards will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. Seventy percent (70%) of each contribution is used by your state PAC to support state and local political candidates. Until your state PAC reaches its RPAC goal, thirty percent (30%) is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C.§ 30116; after the state PAC reaches its RPAC goal it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates.
Each year, PAR and NAR determine the percentage and amount of their dues which are not tax deductible for income tax purposes. For 2022, the PAR non-deductible is 5% or $7.50. While the NAR amount is 36% or $54. Due to NAR lobbying efforts, please note that the entire $35 Consumer Advertising Campaign Special Assessment qualifies as fully deductible. 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 be considered non-deductible for income tax purposes. This non-deductible portion must be disclosed to members on their dues invoice each year. Members who join throughout the year would multiply their dues on the prorated amount invoice for the non-deductible amount of 3% for PAR and 38% for NAR. Your dues are broken down on your invoice.
