IRS Certification Letters

IRS Verification of Tax-Exemption status

The IRS sometimes recognizes a group of organizations as tax-exempt if they are affiliated with a central organization. This avoids the need for each of the organizations to apply for exemption individually. A group exemption letter has the same effect as an individual exemption letter except that it applies to more than one organization. The Marine Corps League's Group Exemption Number is 0955. With Group Exemptions, it is the central organization's responsibility to verify for individuals and organizations of a subordinate organization's (our detachment) standing and tax-exemption. The Marine Corps League national headquarters and IRS letters are below.
