FINANCIAL AND LEGAL

In 1994, TAPS received its designation from the IRS as a charitable corporation, and has since maintained its good standing.  TAPS' Federal Tax Identification number is 92-0152268.

For a list of our business credentials and regulatory compliance certificates, please view the documents in PDF format below.

TAPS is registered in all 50 states and in the District of Columbia.  To view TAPS' state registration certificate, please check on-line with the appropriate jurisdiction's Attorney General's office, Secretary of State, Department of Consumer Protection, or other agency which oversees charities and charitable solicitations.  Or contact TAPS directly.

Workplace Giving Programs note:  TAPS solicits for various workplace giving campaigns including the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) and the United Way.

Please note that TAPS' 2009 overhead rate was 9.6%.   This number derives from TAPS' 2009 audited financial results and from the definition of overhead by the US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) which administers the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), and other charity accreditation and monitoring agencies that track equivalent metrics.  Our small overhead rate means that $0.90 of every donated dollar goes directly toward TAPS' programs and services.

The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) is a not-for-profit organization and is not part of, or endorsed by, the Department of Defense.
