What Are They Lobbying For?
To set the stage of the complete disdain for the appraisal industry and the public trust…
In the 2019 TAF 990 Filing, and based on the assumption their compensation has increased in the last three years, the two leaders of TAF, Dave & Kelly, run a 12 employee entity and make a staggering ± $750,000 annually. No wonder they don’t want to accept grant money to enable oversight in a not-for-profit!
But it gets worse…
TAF spent $1.4 million dollars lobbying over the past four years using the revenue they take in from appraisers in what amounts to a bureaucratic money making institution that is supposed to be a not-for-profit.
What are they lobbying for? I can only assume it is to keep the status quo. I urge TAF to share with the world what they are spending all that money on. Perhaps I’ll get another chickenshit letter that I can frame in my office. Remember this is the leadership that thought sending this bat-shit crazy letter was a good idea.
