CEO Comments
For the years 2008 and 2009 the 990N was not filed due to a misunderstanding of a new volunteer that did our taxes and receipts for us. She said that she was told the we where exempt from filling due to not having any donations or outside funding coming in. But this year we were told that we needed to start filling the 990N postcard. As of 2010 we are filling the 990N postcard.
