I saw the notice on the side about filing with the Charities Division of the Secretary of State’s office—how do I know whether our PTA is required to register? Also, if we are already registered, how do I file the annual update?
Any nonprofit that receives more than $25,000 in revenue from public contributions (including dues, receipts at fund-raisers, and donations) is required to register with the Charities Division of the Secretary of State’s Office, and file an annual report that must be received by the Secretary of State's Office no later than May 31st following the end of the fiscal year. More information and the necessary forms are available online at the Secretary of State’s website. If you have any questions or need assistance from our office, please contact Tatia Vasbinder either at 253-565-2153 or 1-800-562-3804.
