All troops use the Council's tax id number. However, we may not have
sub-accounts for the girls in the troop account - I was given to understand
that this affects our tax-exempt status, as that way an INDIVIDUAL, rather
than the ORGANIZATION, will gain some benefit.
I also found out this year that someone actually reads the troop's annual
financial reports at Council. Unlike the BSA, GSUSA troops must file an
annual financial report with their council. (I was way surprised when I
became Pack treasurer, and wasn't required to report in any great detail
to anyone!) Anyway, I got a phone call wondering why we had so much money
in our account (~$800). They don't like us to carry over large sums from
year to year, unless we are saving for a big trip. I explained that we
were spending it as fast as we could, but we sold too many of those darn
cookies. Did they want us to sell less cookies next year? :-)
