This page contains information and forms that will assist affected DAV subordinate units to reinstate their tax-exempt status. The reinstatement can be granted only by the Internal Revenue Service. DAV does not have the authority to reverse an IRS-initiated revocation.
DAV is able only to provide DAV-specific information that may assist in the reinstatement process. Most of that information is contained in the “DAV FAQ” below. If there are additional questions that any subordinate unit believes to be appropriate to submit to DAV, please use the designated e-mail address of [email protected]. DAV cannot accept telephone inquiries on these matters.
