BoA Accounts: $34,851.48
PayPal Account: $1301.71
Total: $36,153.19 +/- from last report (07/25/2017): +$79.66
IRS 501c(3) reinstatement fee: $850
Face to Face (estimated based on last year's cost): $4227.00
Completed IRS Form 1023 and supporting documents sent to IRS on 9/2/2017 and received today. Will take 2-4 months for reinstatement if approved (likely)
Completed LOPSA 2016, 2015, 2014, 2014 income tax Form 990-EZ, and sent to IRS by CPA firm
Get up to date with filings for New Jersey Department of Revenue. Our registration is current but I don't think we have filed required forms for sales tax and income tax for many years. George: This might require a CPA that is familiar with NJ tax law, but let's wait until we get our non-profit status reinstated first.
Take over domain name registration from Lee Damon for casitconf.org, as requested. Forwarded Lee's email to Dan Rich
Problem continues with multiple PayPal accounts, one of which I do not have access to. More questionable chargebacks are showing up, and I cannot dispute them so they get paid out by default. - George: Brian should receive the replies back from PayPal people, as George set up "send as" in Gmail needed.
