Still way behind in my emails...  :(



Pat Smith is a bookkeeper I use for Cornfield Electronics.  She is really more versed in the non-profit world.  I asked her earlier, and she said she would help us out.  She'll also give us a good price.

> I'll go ahead and file our 990-N "e-postcard" for 2008 taxes. We
> qualified for the e-postcard due to our income of less than $25,000
> during the 2008 fiscal year, which started in October and ended 31
> December.
> For 2009, however, we will need to file the 990-EZ form, unless our

> See the 2008 tax year 990-EZ form here:

> I suggest that we start thinking about hiring an accountant with

> good while, getting set up with an accountant sooner rather than later
> will lead to fewer unpleasant surprises when it comes time to file next
> year. Does anyone have an accountant for nonprofits they like?
> We of course should also ask the whole membership, figure out someone to
