It looks like Mike Zullo did a little more redacting than we realized when he provided, as required by law, the Cold Case Posse’s application to the IRS for a tax-exempt determination. A full copy has been obtained from the IRS, and among the additional material is this page:
Substantively, there is a contradiction between this addendum and the main filing that says their income is projected to be $6,500, and not the $5,000 shown here. Indeed reports in the press indicate that the CCP has spent far more than $25,000 investigating Obama’s identity.
“EIN” is misspelled in the top line. I use the phrase “screws the IRS” as a joking reference to the typo in the first paragraph, “genetally.” “The” should probably be “that.” There is an error in subject/verb agreement in the first sentence: “organizations … is” and the clause “which is …” seems misplaced and in any case should be preceded by a comma.
In the second paragraph that really should be part of the first, we again have subject verb disagreement: “receipts … comes” and again, the comma required before “which” is omitted.
There is a missing blank line between the third and fourth paragraphs (or better, the two should be one paragraph), and the text of the fourth is mangled with “it” probably written for “its.”
Here is the text:
MARICOPA COUNTY SHERIFF’S COLD CASE POSSE, INC Eim 01-0877871
ADDENDUM TO PART I, LINE 10
Section 501 (c) (3) genetally provides the organizations are not
required to file form 990 (or form EZ 990) which is affiliated
with a governmental unit or whose annual income/receipts are not
more than $25,000.00 annually.
In our situation the only annual receipts which we will have comes
from our members paying annual dues of $100.00. Our membership
consists of 50 people.
The section further states that governmental affiliates likewise
are not required to do so.
Maricopa County Arizona is definitely a governmental unit and since
we are it affiliates again that requirement of filing said form does
not apply to us.
