Tax-exempt status and worker classification

Have questions on whether government entities need a tax-exempt number or a determination letter?

Our Government Information Letter webpage and video can answer:

  • How can you prove your “tax-exempt” status as a government entity?
  • Why don’t government entities require a determination letter from the IRS to secure tax-exempt status?
  • What does it mean to be a dual-status entity?  


How do I know if someone I hire is an employee or an independent contractor?

Government employers have unique employment tax classification issues. Worker classification can be difficult but our Employer and Pay Related Issues webpages and TE/GE Worker Classification: Employee or Independent Contractor? video will help you by answering common questions. You can also find links to IRS payroll forms and publications that include information specific to government entities in the Public Employer’s Toolkit.
