Posts and Associated Auxiliary Units
The relationship between a Unit and a Post is one of cooperation rather than regulation. The American legion Posts and American Legion Auxiliary Units are related but independent organizations.
The National Judge Advocate has issued the following ruling: An Auxiliary Unit supports the Post and is separately chartered by the Auxiliary National Constitution and Bylaws. The Auxiliary is tax exempt under section 501(c)(19) of the Code and is included in the group ruling to determine whether the Post meets membership requirements concerning exemption from federal income tax of a Post; “at least 75 percent of the members of which are past or present members of the Armed Forces of the United States and substantially all of the other members of which are individuals who are cadets or are spouses, widows, or widowers of past or present members of the Armed Forces of the United States or of cadets”.
The members of a section 501(c)(19) auxiliary that is related to a Post are a separately formed organization and recognized as tax exempt and, therefore, the auxiliary members are not considered members of a Post.
