Hi ladies,

SOME GOOD NEWS!!!  The Pelham 1024 submittal was ‘COMPLETED’.  Yay!  One down!  This tells me that the 1024 submittal had everything they needed and is done.
I tried to then go in and do the 990N form for Pelham.  Bad news, it was still “rejected”.   Said that the  “EIN of the filer in the Return Header must be established as an exempt organization filer in the e-file database.”  AHHHHHH!!!!!
So, I put a call in to Jeff Flynn who is the IRS guy we have a direct # for.  I asked him to give me a call back.  It may just mean that the e-file database still isn’t updated yet.  Not sure.
Good news, the system DID allow me to at least File!  We weren’t able to even do that before.
So we’re making progress.  In the meantime, I’ve been diligently collecting pics of charters and audits from across the state.  We are still missing items.
As of today April 8, 2023, Charters STILL needed  (10) (MUST say AUXILIARY, NOT LADIES)
Raymond, Plymouth, Bartlett, Claremont, Littleton, Laconia, Ossippee, Charleston, Hindsdale, Dist. 4
I’m also missing audits still from the following:  (15)
Plymouth, Somersworth, Bartlett, Jaffrey, Claremont, Littleton, Derry, Franklin, Berlin, Milton, Charlestown, Merrimack, Hindsdale, Dist. 5, Dist. 7
See Treasurer tab for link on more information.  I’ve already reached out to Donna Ralston again as well.
Linda/Carol – You will be talking to these people soon I’m sure about getting installation reports, end of year stuff, etc.
Please be sure to ask these people for either the picture of their Charter or the Audits or BOTH as needed.
Have them email me a pic of the Charter to
They can either email me the audits or send hard copies to:  319 Mammoth Rd., Pelham, NH  03076
If I don’t get this info by the C of A, I will be announcing  WHO is still delinquent.
