RPAC Disclaimer – Paid for by the Minnesota Realtors Political Action Committee. Contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Corporate contributions of any kind are prohibited. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used to benefit political candidates on a state and federal level who support REALTOR® objectives. You may contribute more or less than the suggested amount. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal, and the National Association of REALTORS® or any of its state and local associations will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. One hundred percent (100%) of contributions under $1,000 go to MN-RPAC for use in state and local elections. Contributions totaling $1,000 or more result in a 70% allocation to MN-RPAC to support state and local political candidates and a 30% allocation (up to the federal contribution limit) to NAR-RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C. 30116. Any amount exceeding federal contribution limits under 52 U.S.C. 30116 will be allocated to MN-RPAC. Federal law prohibits NAR-RPAC from soliciting donations from other than: (i) executive and administrative personnel of the National Association of REALTORS® or affiliated state or local associations, (ii) members of the National Association of REALTORS® or any affiliated state or local associations, (iii) individual members of a member nonstock corporation (with proper prior approval), and (iv) families of all three groups. Any contribution received from any other person will be returned to the donor. For further information concerning RPAC contributions, please contact Chris Galler, RPAC Treasurer at email@example.com.
