The State Bar has been determined exempt from federal income taxes under §501 (c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Client Protection Fund
The State Bar collects fees from its members in order to sustain a Client Protection Fund (the Fund) established to protect clients of State Bar members. The State Bar appoints trustees to administer the Fund. The Fund is maintained as a separate trust and is not included in the accounts of the State Bar.

The Bar's finances are audited every year by an independent accounting company. You can view the 2018 audit here. Please note the audit has a different format and content this year.
