Tax Exemption for Local Meetings

Quaker meetings which are members of New England Yearly Meeting can document their 501(c)(3) status by joining our federal group exemption. Explanatory presentations and some tools are gathered below. Invitations are being sent to local meetings treasurers and finance clerks; please contact the Yearly Meeting office if you would like another copy.

Sales tax is a state tax, so sales tax-exemption documents vary by state; for more information, please contact Frederick Martin, the accounts manager.
