If and when it is approved — and again, we are not aware of any reason why it wouldn’t be — our tax-exempt status will be restored back to the date of the filing (on or about March 28, 2012) — and contributions and donations made on or after that date will once again be tax-deductible, according to all of the information we have received. Please keep in mind that the CBA does not provide tax advice, and it is always a good idea for you to consult your own tax advisors about your particular situation.

Because this issue arose very recently, the Board of Directors has not yet had a chance to discuss it at a Board meeting. The Board will do so at its next meeting and will discuss how to implement appropriate measures aimed at preventing this from happening again.
