Apparently the fees are a matter of procedure but as long as you're
not chronically late in your tax payment and bother to send a letter
explaining your circumstances, they will almost always waive them. I
was also told that this should have no bearing on our continued 501c3
status or renewal.

After the 2010 tax drama (AND the 2009 tax drama) I decided to not
work with the tax ninja anymore. I've been meaning to write him a sour
yelp review.
