Old information below

Result / Status of meeting

She Recommended

  1. Immediately find a corporate / tax attorney so that we can:
    • Review Purchase Agreement, primarily for the purpose of making sure our accounting methods are kosher w/501c3 desires.desires
    • Make sure that we are kosher with current status of State & Federal Filings
      • Our Articles of Incorporation were accepted on January 10th, 2010, according to the stamp (see link at bottom)
  2. Immediately begin work on filling out IRS 501c3 Forms
    • She did say it's better to file properly the first time. Don't rush & send in something shitty.
    • She is willing to help out with this - probably cost $
  3. Get D&O Insurance figured out
  4. Make sure we have basic accounting information for 2010, 2011, 2012. (Pretty solid on 2011 and 2012)


A fun conundrum

  • We are in a limbo spot of actually being a for profit corporation, with the intent of become a 501c3 Non profit. The IRS gives you ~3 years to figure this out.
  • If we file annual income tax forms right now, we would be filing them as a for profit corporation
    • Filing annual income tax forms as a for profit corporation makes it much harder to then apply to become a non profit 501c3.
  • If we don't file any annual income tax forms within 3 years from our initial incorporation date (January 2010), the IRS gets upset.
  • Turnaround time for 501c3 forms is typically >6 months from when we submit it to the IRS.
  • If our intent is to become a 501c3 Non Profit, we need to get the submission process started ASAP, and turned in within the next couple weeks.
  • If our intent is to become a <some regular for profit corporation>, we need to file annual income forms & more ASAP.


Responsibilities we need filled yesterday

  1. Someone to find a reputable Corporate/Tax Attorney to communicate our situation with
  2. Someone to start trudging through the IRS 501c3 Application Process: http://www.irs.gov/charities/article/0,,id=96109,00.html
