Based on its 2020 tax return, Freedom Service Dogs of America used joint cost accounting for 5 percent of its $4.1 million budget. While legal, this accounting method is often used to disguise overhead costs as program spending. We recommend that no more than 5 percent of a budget be allocated to joint cost accounting.

Furthermore, based on its 2020 tax return, we calculate Freedom Service Dogs of America has net assets equal to 3.14 times its annual budget. This may be an indication that the group is spending too little of its donations on programs. We recommend net assets exceed no more than 3 years of the group’s annual budget.
