Rebuild Hope Tax-Exempt Status
A public benefit corporation ("non-for-profit" organization) like Rebuild Hope receives a federal tax-exemption when the U.S. Internal Revenue Service has reviewed its application and granted it 501(c)(3) status via a determination letter. Under IRC Section 170 of the federal tax code, individuals giving to 501(c)(3) organizations that are public charities, may deduct contributions representing up to 50% of the donor's adjusted gross income if the individual itemizes on his tax returns. Most states provide similar tax exemptions and deductions when a federal 501(c)(3) status has been achieved and a similar application process completed in each state that the organization operates. For Rebuild Hope, the state of operation is California.
