A tax number is to a corporation or business what a Social Security Number
is to an individual. Your troop doesn't have one and believe me, you don't
want one (unless you LIKE filling out a tax return every year).
If a store needs a tax ID to make a contribution, there are two possible
solutions. First, your chartering organization probably has a tax ID
number. The contribution could be made to them, for the troop. Second,
your local council will have a tax ID number; perhaps you could go through them.
