The business of business-catching money

Feb 3, 2009   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on The business of business-catching money

There’s a boatload of business details to attend to…I been busy writing and re-writing and filling out forms to make it all legit in the eyes of discriminating donors and of course Uncle Sam! Top of the heap is to apply for tax-exempt status as a public charity…meaning everyone will be able to throw tons of money at Dog Meets World and take a tax-deduction for being so generous. To complete this very comprehensive application one must script out bylaws (to run the corporations), obtain an EIN (like a SSN for a business) and open up a banking account and generally act like you know what you are doing.

NOTE HERE: A real IRS agent (yes there are real and nice IRS agents) confirmed that since all organizing documents are completed and the tax-exempt form has been submitted in good faith (very good faith I might add) Dog Meets World may NOW conduct business as a tax-exempt nonprofit organization.

Feel free to be amongst the first donors to this bow-wow of a charity!
