Like many small non-profit organizations, we ran into an issue with our IRS tax exempt status this year.
We were not aware of the new filing rules which require annual filing regardless of income level. Because we did not file annually for three consecutive years, the IRS has revoked our tax exempt status. We are working with the IRS to get our status reinstated retroactive to the revocation date.
What this means to you. Donations made after May 2001, may not qualify as a tax write off. If we get retroactive reinstatement of our tax exempt status, then all donations will qualify as before.
We are operating as we always have and believe we will be reinstated as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization fairly soon. Thank you for your continued support.
