In 1976, the national organization of SCORE was granted federal tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The SCORE Headquarters office files an IRS 990 annually on behalf of the entire organization under the Employer Identification Number (EIN) 52-1067290. Chapters are all covered under this same EIN and do not have individual status as an independent entity with the IRS. Chapters need this EIN when opening securing donations. This is the same EIN on the IRS determination letter.
