Re: 501c3

Hi.

If the person is donating the funds to the chapter, keep the donation with your chapter funds. If the donor wants a receipt, there is a cash donation receipt in the chapter forms directory you can print and give to them. Then send a copy of that to chapters@zombiehunters.org.

Re: ZS is a 501(c)3!

Random thought.... When I worked at a christian camp, obviously 501(c)3, They had a letter so they didn't have to pay sales tax when they went to Wal-Mart and other stores. Is this something Zombie Squad can now do as well? If your state exempts 501c3 orgs from sales tax, then yes. Chapter officers...

Re: ZS is a 501(c)3!

I just noticed on the donations receipts it says "Chapter number and region," is there specific regions ZS wants us to use or is it the default, Eastern, Midwest, South, South west, West? ie. ZSC041/SWR (southwest region) It refers to the geographic designation in your chapter. "St. Louis Metro," "...

Re: ZS is a 501(c)3!

Okay, heard back from the folks that administer the charitable organization fun from Dell.

Re: ZS is a 501(c)3!

I don't know if you're aware of the military's Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Military member's are given a booklet with like every charity under the sun listed. Each charity is assigned a code for the form used to transfer funds from the paycheck. Do you guys have a code for CFC? I have no idea....

Chapter Officers have access to the Chapter Officers' Forum. There are links to the forms needed for chapter management there. There's also a thread with receipt procedures, EIN info, etc. there.

Re: Canning Chicken and dumplings

There is something really cool about looking for a canning recipe only to be directed back to ZS in the first few links. Why'd I try looking anywhere else?

Re: ZS is a 501(c)3!

The best way to do that is to give the gift directly to the chapter. They can add the money to their treasury or property to their inventory. Then the gift stays local. The chapter officers have access to receipts now.

Re: ZS is a 501(c)3!

Cameron's right. A lot of places like libraries donate meeting space all of the time to 501(c)3 charities. So they'd be the best people to ask for that. Keep in mind, ZSI is not in the position to determine what is and isn't deductible for donors. Most companies will already know, and if they don't,...

They'll be under the chapter docs. I'll post links in the chapter officers forum after HQ's board meeting this weekend. There are a few things we want to vote on before posting, just to make sure we don't need to create new versions of them in a couple of weeks.

Re: ZS is a 501(c)3!

Except in the case of office supplies and incidental expenses incurred while donating your time. Give your Office Max receipts to your tax preparer. Don't mail them to HQ. I have enough receipts!

Re: ZS is a 501(c)3!

The IRS is pretty straightforward here.

Time is never deductible. Even if you have a billable rate/service.

Zombie Squad International, Inc. does not give tax advice and suggests you always consult with your tax professional before deducting expenses on your tax return.
