Last night at our weekly BOD meeting Dan walked in holding a single piece of paper smiling ear-to-ear. When he said it was from the IRS I just assumed it was the expected “follow-up questionnaire” to our tax exempt application. Nope!
We are pleased to inform you that upon review of your application for tax exempt status we have determined that you are exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The most amazing part is we only submitted the application 3 months ago. I will say that again…THREE MONTHS AGO! From what we had been told we did not expect to hear anything for at least 6 months. And at that point we would need to reach out to one of our local representatives to follow-up on our behalf.
Needless to say we are excited about our ability to now receive tax-exempt donations and cannot wait to see what other doors this opens. Keep an eye out for more information on this as well as our big anniversary open house in November.
