We are pleased to announce that Zombie Squad International, Inc. is now a tax-exempt non-profit organization under section 501(c)3 of the US tax code!

What does this mean? Well, it means a lot more work for our chapter officers, but it also means that we can now collect and distribute funds directly for disaster relief instead of collecting and giving them to a third party non-profit. It also means that any donations you make to ZS can be deducted from your income taxes, so this might be a good time to go donate to our Hurricane Sandy Relief Drive!

It also means that your annual membership dues are tax deductible, so sign up or renew now!

Finally, our tax-exempt status is retroactive to our application date of 01 January 2012, so any donations you've made or memberships you've purchased/renewed this calendar year are tax deductible. Make sure you have copies of your PayPal receipts. Please note that merchandise purchases are not tax deductible due to the goods you receive for your monies.

There's already a thread about it in the Chapter Officers forum. Title has something to do with headaches and Cyr laid down a lot of stuff. But, yes, more instructions/guidance to follow.

The account wife says Congratulations! We're trying to set one up for our son's soccer club and even with her experience it's a pain in the ass.

Is it effective for 2012?

Alright, I read back through that thread. Awesome, MOAR IRS paperwork for me. The irony is not lost. :|

Anyway, this is going to be awesome. Congratulations and thanks for all the hard work. :clap:

Does this affect Non-US Chapters/members in any way ?

Seeing as we don't pay tax to your Gov

Not necessarily Jamie. If you opt not to sell merchandise or take in donations I think the whole paperwork thing could be largely avoided. If the chapter doesn't make money or have a donation that requires a receipt you could just change the dates on the form that needs to be filed.

I'm not sure I'm going to sell anything but I'll most definately be taking donations. I need to talk to my boys/homies/significant others about selling stuff.

Can you take a deduction for charitable donations to international charities? Check on your charitable donations laws and the official paperwork may have opened some new avenues for ya.

Are we a tax exempt non profit yet?? Oh, that joke doesn't work anymore (or ever).
Seriously though Congrats, as a chapter officer I don't know whether I should celebrate or huddle in a corner and cry for a while :rofl:

Darn! Now I have to be serious about this stuff. I though all I was doing was, just joining a zombie hunting cult. :shock:

Now this is cool, I can now tell people that I am doing charity work. (Every time I lose it and go all mall ninja) 8-)
