Are You Getting The Most Out Of The Tax Laws?

Tax Laws

Members may not be aware that the solicitation of potential customers is regulated under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

Telephone Consumer Protection Act

TCPA prohibits text messages to wireless numbers using automated telephone dialing equipment without adequate consent. We have noticed an uptick on issues regarding the TCPA. For more information, below are links to NAR’s website:
