Livonia PTSA Council Courier
News for November 17
What's the big deal about COMPLIANCE anyway?
- Unit Dues & officer information (due June 1)
- 990 (due Nov 15)
- 25 Members (due Dec 1)
- Up to date BYLAWS (review/approve every three years)
So, why do we collect that information EVERY year? The Michigan PTA MUST collect that information in order to maintain their IRS charitable organization standing - and yours!
The Livonia PTSA Council requires copies as a backup. If something is lost, we have a copy. We can confirm that you sent your information. Sometimes things are misplaced during transition from one board to another. We're your backup.
We can also identify if there might be a problem - when information is missing or incomplete. We'd rather be able to identify a potential problem, and save you a phone call (or several) with the IRS.
If you have questions or concerns, CONTACT YOUR LIAISON!
