Businesses - including real estate agents - are subject to the General Excise Tax (GET) on gross receipts from doing business in Hawaii.
As an agent, you are responsible for paying GET on your portion of commission income and Real will report and pay GET on the Split Paid to Real.
Once your license is transferred to Real, you must send us a copy of your GET License (an Onboarding Specialist will reach out to you via email).
You can learn more about GET from the Hawaii Department of Taxation: https://tax.hawaii.gov/geninfo/get/
If you do not have a GET license, you can apply for one with the Hawaii Department of Taxation.
