Tax Exemption

There’s a lot of great things that go along with being an official non-profit. For starters, you’re tax-exempt from all of your purchases. But to become a non-profit, your section needs to register to be a subordinate group under the SWE group tax exemption by March 15th.

SWE only updates the IRS once a year as to the existence of new tax exempt sections.  If you don’t file a request to be a subordinate organization under the SWE group tax exemption by March 15th, you won’t be able to become a non-profit until at least July 2011!

There’s a list under the cut of sections that need to register under SWE with the IRS (as of November).

The following sections are golden:

  • H050 Bradley University
