Among the many benefits the National Association of REALTORS® offers to local associations, like MAR, is access to its E-Commerce system for annual billing. In contrast with other systems, E-Commerce does not charge MAR transaction fees (ie. percentage of credit card charges) that add up to thousands of dollars each year. The ability to bill MAR's annual dues through this system will save both time and money, savings we pass on to you, wherever possible.
On October 15, 2019, invoices will be emailed with a link to pay annual dues through NAR's E-Commerce, where payment can be made by e-check or credit card. Please note, payment is due no later than December 15, 2019, and because payment is now made through NAR, accounts not paid on time will have an automatic late fee applied, and memberships to NAR/CAR/MAR will be placed on Inactive Status within 4 days of non-payment.

Payments to the Colorado Association are not deductible as charitable contributions; however, portions of such payments may be deductible as ordinary business expenses in accordance with IRS rules and regulations.
For the 2020 dues billing statements, the following dues are non-deductible:
$25.00 RPAC (voluntary)
$22.71 of CAR
$57.00 of NAR
On your invoice, you have the option to voluntarily contribute $25, or more, to RPAC, which advocates on behalf of REALTORS® to protect the industry and homeowner’s. A portion of your RPAC voluntary fair share amount may be used to support federal candidates and will be charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C. 30116.
You may contribute more or less than the suggested RPAC amount.
CAR estimates that $5.00 in CAR dues will be used to reach the RPAC goal set by NAR.
After CAR reaches its RPAC goal it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates and issues.
Until the state PAC reaches its RPAC goal, 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.
You may refuse to contribute the $25.00 RPAC voluntary fair share amount without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS® or any of its state associations or local boards will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed or a decision not to contribute.
MAR is proud of our members for being recognized for the highest RPAC participation in the state in 2019!
