INFORMATION REGARDING TAX EXEMPT STATUS
- Under the Chartered Partner Concept, Chartering Organizations (churches, service clubs, and community organization) own the Pack, Troop, Crew, Ship, Team, and Post units that are affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America's Program.
- Units are encouraged to get their federal ID number (needed to establish an account with a local bank) and sales tax exempt number from their charter organization, but they can apply directly to the IRS or state. Often, the IRS will provide the unit with a federal ID number over the phone (1-888-829-4933) or a unit can apply online at the IRS website listed in related content. For a MN or WI sales tax exempt number go to the respective state revenue website.
