Organized by "tax year" below: ==2014== Filed by Marc Juul Christoffersen (treasurer as of late 2014 commenting ) and Matt Senate (on Calendar the board of directors at the time). Our tax year ends on November 30th, so the filing dates for form 199N and form 990 is April 15th instead of the normal May 15th. We should really change this. We e-filed 199N e-postcard, and we filed it on time at around 11 pm April 15th. We filed form 990 using form990.org (a free service) at about 1:30 am April 16th and we had to email them an authorization form so they probably won't actually file it until start of business on April 16th. This means we will have filed at least one day late! We may have to pay a small fine for this, but we should receive information about this in the mail. The thing we had to email was "Form 8453-EO" which is an authorization to allow them to e-file. Marc Juul has both a copy of form 8453-EO and the login details for form990.org * [[Media:Sudo room 2014 form 990 and supplements.pdf|Federal tax filing: Form 990 and supplements]]* [[Media:Sudo room 2014 form 199N e-postcard.pdf|California state filing: 199N e-postcard]] ==2013== ===Applying for State Tax Exemption===We received a notice from the State of California Franchise Tax Board, notifying us that (since we have yet to submit or complete our 501(c)3 application) we must fill out state form 3500 to convince California not to levy state taxes for last year, 2013. I've filled out this form to the best of my knowledge so far, but it is incomplete. It needs some more attention. See attached: [[File:state_tax_form_3500_sudo_room.pdf]]which should have saved my submitted values to many of the required fields. We need a few things: # Review what I've already added (make sure dates and such are correct!)# Complete the rest of the form to the best of our ability# See if any lawyerly advice can help us ensure this goes smoothly# Submit before Friday November 7 (30 days from October 9, 2014) "Send us either your tax exempt letter, Form 3500, Form 3500A, or Form 100 with a copy of this letter within the next 30 days or we may issue a tax assessment based on available information. A penalty of 25% of the additional tax may be assessed for failure to provide information upon written request."  <gallery>File:State tax form 3500 sudo room v2.pdf|2nd DRAFT version of California State tax form 3500 for sudo room year 2013File:State tax form 3500 sudo room.pdf|DRAFT version of California State tax form 3500 for sudo room year 2013File:State not tax-exempt notice scan-1.jpg|State not tax-exempt notice scan-1File:State not tax-exempt notice scan-2.jpg|State not tax-exempt notice scan-2File:3500.pdf|California State Tax Form 3500File:3500bk.pdf|Instruction book for California State Tax Form 3500</gallery> ===Notes from submitting Taxes===
This is your treasurer ''notconfusing'' speaking. I'm a tax amateur, and you can too. On Apr 9th 2014, I went the Sustainable economies law center legal cafe to get some advice about how sudo should handle taxes. Here's what I learned:
##I will file these soon.
###Update: State taxes done - see [[Media:2013 sudo 199n confirmation.png]]
###Update: Federal taxes need to be mailed [[Media:File:Sudo_tax_federal_990.pdf]]
###Our California EIN "Entity ID number" not federal EIN "Employer ID number" is 3617428.
#2013 was the year we switched from being "Eddan Katz" dba (doing business as) Sudo Room, to Sudo Room, the California non-profit public benefit corporation.
