Internal Revenue Code
IRC Section 501(c)(4)
This code section establishes the basic parameters for qualifying as a tax exempt social welfare organization. The reason many associations want to qualify for this tax exempt status is that they do not pay taxes on interest income. For large associations with substantial reserve balances, this can represent a significant tax savings. See full copy of IRC Section 501(c)(4) here.
IRC Section 501(c)(7)
This code section establishes the basic parameters for qualifying as a (partially) tax exempt recreational organization. The reason many associations want to qualify for this tax exempt status is that they want to avoid the tax risks associated with Form 1120. Associations exempt under this section do pay taxes on interest income. See full copy of IRC Section 501(c)(7) here.
