A few of you will know what that means. I have just applied for §501(C)(3) status with the IRS! What that means is that my application is now in queue for approval, which can take up to a year. The good news, is that the approval is retroactive to the date of incorporation of Stacy’s Funny Farm in the State of Washington. What THAT means is that when it is approved, any donations made since May 30, 2014 will be fully tax deductible! So the goal is approval by April 15, 2015, eight months away. I think we have a fighting chance of making that deadline.
I will let everyone know when approval comes through, and at that time I will personally contact everyone who has already donated to let them know they can claim the deduction. I am extremely lucky to have some steady donations coming in, and so are the little pets who are eating all those radishes!
In other news, Dobby made it Oh So Clear today that he does not approve of watermelon in his potato bowl. I am ready to hire this duck to follow Dobby around and clean up the messes!
