Our Letter Dated:
February 18, 1992
This modifies our letter of the above date in which we stated that you would be treated as an organization that is not a private foundation until the expiration of your ruling period.
Your exempt status under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code as an organization described in section 501(c) (3) is still in effect. Based on the information you submitted, we have determined that you are not a private foundation within the meaning of section 509(a) of the Code because you are an organization of the type described in section 509(a)(1) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi).
Grantors and contributors may rely on this determination unless the Internal Revenue Service publishes notice to the contrary. However, if you lose your section 509(a)(1) status, a grantor or contributor may not rely on this determination if he or she was in part responsible for, or was aware of, the act or failure to act, or the substantial or material change on the part of the organization that resulted in your loss of such status, or if he or she acquired knowledge that the Internal Revenue Service had given notice that you would no longer be classified as a section 509(a)(1) organization.
As of January 1, 1984, you are liable for tazes under the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (social security taxes) on the remuneration of $100 or more you pay to each of your employees during a calendar year. You are not liable for the tax imposed under the Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA).
You are required to file Form 990 only if your gross receipts each year are normally more than $25,000. For guidance in determining whether your gross receipts are "normally" more than $25,000, see the instructions for Form 990. If a return is required, it must be filed by the 15th day of the fifth month after the end of your annual accounting period. A penalty of $10 a day is charged when a return is filed late, unless there is reasonable cause for the delay. However, the maximum penalty cannoy exceed $5,000 or 5 percent of your gross receipts for the year, whichever is less. This penalty may also be charged if a return is not complete, so please be sure your return is complete before you file it.
If we have indicated in the heading of this letter that an addendum applies, the addendum enclosed is an integral part of this letter.
Because this letter could help resolve any questions about your private foundation status, please keep it in your permanent records.
If you have any questions, please contact the person whose name and telephone number are shown above.
