ARMA Structure and Governing Documents IRS - 501(c)(6) ARMA International, its chapters and regions are not exempt from paying sales tax. ARMA and all chapters/regions are not-for-profit organizations; as such, they are liable for paying state/local sales tax. ARMA is NOT considered a non-profit organization, which would be exempt from paying sales tax on any purchases (for example: Red Cross is a non-profit thus do not have to pay sales tax).
“Not-for-Profit” What does it mean? The primary goal of the organization is to fulfill the needs of its members, rather than produce profits for owner/investors. It does not mean the organization should not make a profit. It can and should produce a surplus of revenues over expenses – the surpluses must be used to enhance the position of the organization and its mission.
