ZPR awarded IRS exempt status!

December 27, 2007

Earlier today I called the IRS. My highest hope was that, 4 months since submission, ZPR's application for tax-exempt recognition had been assigned to a reviewer.

Well, it had. But whoever it was never called or wrote. Instead she, or he, approved it!

I spoke with IRS Agent, Ms. Griffith. In spite of an uncomfortable cold and seasonal stress, her tone was warm.

Zion Public Radio, she said, "did receive its exempt status and...should receive [its] exempt determination letter within the next two weeks."


Among other things, this means that all donations to ZPR are indisputably deductible according to IRS tax law.

Meaning your Charter Membership gifts to Zion Public Radio, an educational nonprofit, are tax deductible.

One of the easiest way to get give—and have records to prove it—is by bank transfer or by credit-debit card, in our case through PayPal. It's as simple as a click above this little icon:

Because I'm not an expert in tax-law or accounting, and because every situation is unique, you should direct any questions about your own situation to a qualified tax-accounting professional.

For all of us using the Gregorian calendar, by necessity or choice...

A Blessed New Year!

Let us make it so. Then every day exclaim,

Baruch HaShem!

Hallelujah! I made a small contribution to Zion Public Radio. It's not much, but it's something. I'll try to donate more in the future.
