2019 Payment Plan Schedule

2019 dues invoices mailed in September included incorrect tax deductabiliy information. Correct language below.

Non-deductible dues:  $87.00 of your Washington REALTORS® dues and $57.00 of your National Association of REALTORS® dues are not deductible for federal income tax purposes.  ** Donations to the REALTOR® Scholarship Foundation, a 501(c)(3)  non-profit corporation, may be deductible as a charitable expense. Consult your tax advisor.

$35.00 of your Washington State dues will be deposited into the Washington REALTOR® Political Action Committee (Washington State RPAC) as a contribution on your behalf.  If you would prefer that the $35.00 go to issue advocacy purposes instead, you may send an email to [email protected] and the required $35.00 will be directed to the non-PAC state issues fund.

FREQUENTLY ASK QUESTIONS: PAYMENT OF REALTOR® MEMBERSHIP DUES

Seattle King County REALTORS® operates on a calendar year. Membership dues are due annually on the first day of January. Dues payments must be received no later than January 10 to avoid late fees and be granted full membership status.

On January 11th a late fee of $25 will be assessed to your dues billing. Unpaid invoices will be assessed an additional $25 on February 11th and again on March 11th, for a total of $75. Membership will be terminated for non-payment of dues on April 1.

The REALTORS® Association is a three-tiered organization. When you join at the local level you also gain membership to the state and national associations.

Do I need to pay my membership dues in full in one payment?

Dues are payable in full upon application for membership. Any partial payments received will be credited to your account, however, until the full amount is paid you are not granted full membership status.

Renewing member dues are due on January 1 each year. You may make payments but will be assessed a late fee on January 10 if the the balance is not paid in full.

SKCR offers several payment plan options for renewing members that do not incur late fees. Click HERE to view the Payment Plan Schedule. Please call 425.974.1011 with questions.

I am an assistant and do not actively list or sell, am I required to pay dues?

When your designated broker joins SKCR he/she agrees that all licensees will be invited to join as well. There are no exceptions made for licensed assistants. Non-licensed assistants are not subject to membership dues.

I only work part-time and will be out of the area for three months this year. May I pay a pro-rated dues amount?

Membership applies to all real estate licensees who hang their license in a REALTOR® office. While you may not be practicing for a certain period of time, if your license remains in an active status in a REALTOR® office, the full annual membership dues amount applies.

I plan to retire from real estate sometime this year. Will I receive a partial refund of my annual dues?

Your annual membership dues are non-refundable.

I may be changing offices in the near future. Will I be required to pay membership dues again?

Your membership dues are transferable and will ensure that you remain a REALTOR®. However, dues can only be transferred to a REALTOR® office. Therefore, it is important that you determine whether the office you are moving to is a REALTOR® office. This means an office wherein the designated broker holds membership. Your membership cannot be transferred to a non-REALTOR® office. If you elect to join a non-REALTOR® office your membership will be terminated.

I am not interested in membership. Am I obligated to join SKCR?

The designated broker in your office determines whether he/she wishes to hold membership in the REALTOR® Association. When he/she elects to hold membership, they in turn agree that all licensees in their office will be invited to join as well. We do not mandate membership, however, should you elect not to join, your designated broker will be assessed a fee for having a non-REALTOR® licensee in his/her office. We suggest you speak directly with your designated broker about REALTOR® membership.

I am transferring from another association. Do I need to pay the entire dues amount?

When transferring from another association within Washington state and your dues are current, you will only pay the local portion to SKCR. Your state and national dues will have already been paid through your former association. When transferring from another association outside of Washington state and your dues are current, you will pay only the local and state dues. National dues will have been paid through your former association.
