Good point. If a Scout "earns" $500 from a fundraiser which is deposited in an account for his use, that's "taxable income" any way you look at it. A Scout is Trustworthy. Now if the funds raised were deposited into the Troop general account (which is actually the CO's account), and a single check written to pay for the troop's summer camp expenses (for example), that might be defensible. But it shouldn't be "earmarked" for specific scouts. That being said, I am just a Scouter with opinions who has done his own tax returns for 35 years...not a lawyer or accountant.
