Political contributions are
not tax deductible as charitable contributions for federal and state income tax
purposes. Contributions to the REALTOR® Action Fund are voluntary, but you may
give more, or less, or nothing at all. Failure to contribute will not affect an
individual’s membership status in the California Association of REALTORS®
(C.A.R.). Contributions will be allocated among three of C.A.R.’s political
action committees (PACs), according to different formulas approved by C.A.R.
for personal and corporate contributions. These PACs are: CREPAC (supports
state and local candidates); CREPAC/Federal (supports federal candidates); and
CREIEC (makes independent expenditures in support of or opposition to
candidates). C.A.R. also sponsors IMPAC which supports local and state ballot
measures and other issues that impact real property in California. The allocation formula may
change including re-designating a portion to IMPAC.
