If At First You Don’t Succeed

September 15, 2009

I called Mr. Eric Kaye, our IRS case officer at his office in Cincinnati, Ohio this morning. I was happy to tell him I had forwarded the acknowledgment letter from the office of the Oregon Secretary of State showing the date we filed our Articles of Incorporation.

And he told me that I’d send the wrong paperwork. Again.

He explained that he needs a “confirmation copy” of our Articles of Incorporation. This is a duplicate of the papers we filed with the Oregon Secretary of State’s office with the word “FILED” stamped on it.

He said he had another application for a nonprofit in Oregon and this group had sent in a confirmation copy. Ipso facto it exists.

I called Joellyn at Jeanne Smith and Associates and she said she’d take care of it. She’ll call the Secretary of State’s office and get a confirmation copy faxed directly to her. She’ll then fax the document directly to Mr. Kaye.

Mr. Kaye said the confirmation copy is the only additional document he needs, so I’m going to believe that bodes well for the approval process.
