Changes to 2016/2017 Nondeductible Dues Language
-
2016 Nondeductible Dues
In compliance with the Tax Reform Act of 1993, each year the Michigan Realtors® discloses to members, the estimated amount of their dues used for lobbying activities. This amount is not deductible as a business expense for income tax purposes. Initially, the Michigan Realtors® estimated $20 of your 2016 dues were nondeductible for lobbying activities. Upon clarification on how the IRS categorizes lobbying expenditures, the Michigan Realtors® calculates that 100% of your 2016 membership dues and assessments are now deductible for business purposes. While the Michigan Realtors® is not spending less on advocacy and lobbying activities, we’ve receive clarification from the IRS on how activities between related entities (Issues Mobilization Fund, RPAC, MARPAC) are categorized and therefore have determined that 100% of your Michigan Realtors® 2016 member dues and assessments are deductible business activities. The nondeductible portion of members’ NAR dues can be found on www.realtor.org.
 
2017 Nondeductible Dues
The Michigan Realtors® estimates that 100% of your 2017 dues are deductible for business purposes. The deductible portion of your NAR dues can be found on www.realtor.org. In compliance with the Tax Reform Act of 1993, the portion of your dues and assessments spent on lobbying activities is disclosed annually and the estimated portion of your dues allocated to lobbying activities is not deductible as a business expense for income tax purposes.

Legal Lines – Question of the Month
-
With the help of McClelland & Anderson, we are taking the most recently asked questions from our legal hotline and putting them in E-news. We will be featuring a different question each issue.
 
QUESTION:
I am listing vacant land. Should I have my seller complete a vacant land disclosure form?
 
ANSWER:
Sellers of vacant land are not legally required to provide a disclosure form. Sellers who do provide vacant land disclosure forms should be cautioned against making any representations where they are unsure. Unlike with the statutorily required residential seller’s disclosure form, a seller could be held liable for an innocent misrepresentation made in a vacant land disclosure form.
