Here is an update concerning the IRS

requirement for DD214's.

As of 8/1/2014, the National Legion has requested an official

opinion form the law firm of Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

DD214's for your members.


We now need to send in a form

8822-B when ever the "Responsible Party"; ie; the

Commander or Adjutant changes hands.

Just this week, we learned that the IRS has a new form required for EVERY enterprise

with an EIN. That means all corporations, incorporated and non incorporated posts

and tax exempt organizations. Whenever there is a change of address or change

in the person in charge, the new person in charge must now file the IRS Form 8822-B.

This is a basic form that looks like a “Change of Address” form.

What they really want to know is the NAME of the “RESPONSIBLE PARTY.”

This could be the post commander or adjutant or treasurer, or whomever has a level

of control over the funds. This form must be filed by MARCH 1, 2014,

if you have not told the IRS the identity of the Responsible Party and then again within

60-days of whenever your Responsible Party changes.
