IRS Finesses Our Group Exemption Request
The IRS called last week to tell us that they were not considering our request for Group Exemption. They are not denying it. They just aren't considering it. They are returning our payment, but they are not returning our paperwork, nor are they making a judgement. They aren't doing anything.
We have no way of helping local chapters form under a group exemption for 501 C 19 status. Currently every chapter will have to do that themselves, except for our chapters inside Correctional Institutions.
We can't say that we have been denied, turned down or refused. They aren't going to say any of those things. They doing nothing except sending us our check. Then they can close their case file.
We are going to resubmit. Again and again.
Yes, this is the same office that has been derailing other groups' exemption requests.
This means that, after the demise of VVA in about 10 years the only options will be VFW, American Legion and DAV.
