Yes, your Broker can pay you a referral fee. You pay the taxes on all monies you earn.

Yes, your Broker can pay you a referral fee and typically that is done by a check payable to you.

Licensed RE Professionals are eligible for referral fees from other licensed RE Professionals.

We have referral agreement forms that we sign everytime we refer, or receive a referral. Any commissions earned from the referral are also subject to commission splits. And any commission we earn, we pay taxes on.

So the answer is yes to referral fee, yes to making the check out to you, and you pay your own taxes on your split.

Yes. You can work out any referral arrangement with your broker. A referral check typically gets cut to the referring broker (you, as their agent, in this case). You would be responsible for taxes on any income you receive.

Of course your broker can pay you a referral fee. The check will be issued at closing as any referral fee is.

All professional fees for referrals must go through your Broker. Call him/her to review your company policy and CAR.GOV regulations.

Yes, your broker can pay you a referral fee, and you would be responsible for the taxes (you would receive a 1099). Is your broker paying you a referral fee because you referred them someone who bought or sold a house?
