The American Revenue Association

The American Revenue Association (ARA) is a non-profit corporation serving the needs and interests of all collectors of revenues, tax stamps, stamped paper, telegraph and railroad stamps, and general non-postal Back-of-the-Book material — U. S. and foreign, federal, state, provincial, local, municipal and private.

Whether you are a new or seasoned collector, the ARA has much to offer:

Revenues are endlessly fascinating. Most are quite affordable. Yet some are as rare as an inverted Jenny, but cost much less. Many are still waiting to be discovered and recorded.

Whether you are a member or visitor, welcome to the ARA site. Please explore our site, and let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
