Internal Revenue Service 501(c)(3) Determination Letter

Dear CALH Member,

On August 6, 2014, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued correspondence granting the request of the Citizens Against the Landfill in Hempstead (CALH) to be made a tax exempt charitable organization. In the correspondence, the IRS stated in part: “We are pleased to inform you that upon review of your application for tax exempt status we have determined that you are exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to you are deductible under section 170 of the Code.”

The effective date of our exempt status is June 26, 2011, the date of the initial creation of the organization. This means that any contributions made to CALH since June 26, 2011, are deductible for federal income tax purposes.

A special thank you goes to Debra Mergel, Attorney at Law, and Robert Fry, CPA, for their assistance in preparing this application to the IRS.

Your tax deductible donations can be sent to CALH, P.O. Box 871, Hempstead, TX 77445. Thank you for your continued support.
