Hi Mitch:  Since this is simply a matter with local government, I would just call up the treasurer’s office and ask them the procedure.  It isn ‘t something I usually get involved in.  It should be very straight forward, and the City will probably be so happy to have someone come to them and be proactive about this.  Once we file the application, there were be a letter arriving shortly from the IRS, and this letter could be proof that your application is pending.  The City should accept that, if evidence is needed.
Also, as to “ownership”, a nonprofit does not have owners,  only responsible parties (i.e. The board or the officers).  I would talk to the City treasurer before volunteering any social security numbers.Rgds,Carolon 10/10/08 1:45 AM, Mitch Altman at mitch at CornfieldElectronics.com wrote:
Hi Carol,David, our Noisebridge secretary, has a couple of questions regarding registering with SF.  Do you know the answers?  Please see below.Thanks,Mitch.---------------------Hi Mitch,Do you know if Carol will send us instructions on applying for a SanFrancisco tax registration certificate? I found the instructions on howto apply here:http://www.sfgov.org/site/treasurer_page.asp?id=14973#4Since we do not have a 501c3 status yet, but we also do not have anyemployees, it looks to me like we pay the minimum fee of $25 and filethe certificate. This has to be done within '15 days from start ofbusiness.'The application also asks for the SSNs of all owning entities. Does thatmean every single member of a membership nonprofit? or can we get awaywith just the officers?-David Molnar
