Why does the Member Portal show I owe more than $1000?

When you first open the Member Portal, the total amount that you see will be the TOTAL amount for ALL of 2020 for each bill type. We bill out the entire year as a service to the members who prefer to pay for the entire year all at once. Most of the MLS, IDX, Admin, or Supra charges are NOT due now, they are due according to the chart above, and you can sign up for a payment plan that takes these automatically at the monthly amount rather than paying the full annual amount due.

Why do I not have a Payment Option for monthly or quarterly?

If you are signed up for AutoPay, you will not have the option of making manual payments, because you do not need to. Simply allow the system to take the Auto Payment and you are good to go. 

How much are the late fees? 

$50 for annual dues, $25 for MLS. Dues are non-waivable and non-refundable.

There is a $20 re-activation fee for Supra if you are disconnected for non-pay.

 

How are Data Feeds/IDX/RETS billed?

IDX/Data Feed are billed quarterly. For fee schedule, feed types or more information, click here

 

What is the refund policy?

NO REFUNDS according to NAR Policy.

 

What is the $20 RPAC Contribution?

This is a voluntary donation to your Political Action Committee that is going to help benefit candidates and issues that support the real estate industry at the local, state, and national level. You don't have to be involved with politics to support your industry!

RPAC Disclaimer: Contributions to RPAC are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Contributions are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The amounts indicated are merely guidelines and you may contribute more or less than the suggested amounts. The National Association of REALTORS® and its state and local associations will not favor or disadvantage any member because of the amount contributed or decision not to contribute.  You may refuse to contribute without reprisal. 70% of each contribution is allocated to your state or local PAC efforts to support state and local political candidates; 30% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C. 30116. 30% Contributions received from corporate entities shall be forwarded to the National Association of Realtors Political Advocacy Fund.

 

What is the $20 Benevolence Contribution?

This is a voluntary donation to the CPAR Benevolence fund. 

When Hurricane Michael struck our area on October 10th, 2018. REALTOR associations both in Florida and around the country immediately went to action to figure out how they could help. Between the National Association of Realtor, Florida Realtors, and all of the local associations that donated, CPAR members received a total of well over $1 Million in aid and assistance. The CPAR Benevolence Fund was created as a vehicle for us to raise money so that we may Pay It Forward when disaster strikes other areas. 

What is the difference between Primary vs Secondary Membership?

The only difference between Primary and Secondary membership is which association is paying your State and National dues. Your Primary association collects your dues for the state and national level, and forward that to the appropriate association. Your Secondary association only collects local dues.
