- AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT OUR TAX EXEMPT STATUS: Citizens for the Regents Road Bridge (CFTRRB) has been approved to be a tax exempt public charity under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501 (c) (3). We received this good news in mid-November and the IRS’s approval of our application is effective as of June 7, 2017. Donations to CFTRRB by all taxpayers are now tax deductible.
