We purchased plot on lake 58 years ago and a year ago

We purchased plot on lake 58 years ago and a year ago Foundation claims we encroached on their land and a shed a 1/2 of our screened in porch is theirs. Our recorded is very poor and does not support the stakes that were put in when we purchased property. We have 2 stakes at lake front, a measurement of 130' on southerly side, no point and no measurement on northerly side. We have done everything to prove ownership but Foundation that is non-profit, tax exempt(who have pulled some very shady deals) are threatening law suit. They have submitted no proof except aerial shot of property which is not worth the paper it is written onJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: vermontJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: yes we looked up adverse possession and quiet title and asked him to file in court but he chose to work withnon profit organization and they have exchanged letters for a year to no avail and $17,000JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: First he sued in court to win land. They threatened counter law and he backed off and suggested we give them easement for triangle they claim. However, they have just about purchased all land on lake as they are nudist colony and want lake to themselves. We know an easement will get them on our property and they will make life miserable until they get itJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Yes. We found 3rd stake the other day in the area we said stake was placed. The 75' recorded along road falls short from what we were shown. They claim we have to go by deed but northerly side has no measurement to road and only describes it was westerly.

I need a second option. I opened a blog on my life living

I need a second option.I opened a blog for awareness on my life living with Fibromyalgia. I am going to start selling apparel on my website. My question is, what is the best way for me to incorporate my new venture. I've read that a nonprofit is never really own by one person it's actually never owned by anyone. It's managed by the board members, etc. The funds I use to open this venture with never be recuperated because it will stay on the nonprofit or donated to another nonprofit is dissolved.This is a story on my life and I obviously want to make money. I eventually want to open a non-profit. To provide services for the fibro community, help with grants to pay for treatments or medication, help with support groups and a support hotline, raise awareness and funds to help with research etc. But, I have already opened my blog and started branding my name and myself, just haven't incorporated yet because I'm not sure which way to go. Thank you.

A religious non-profit organization was incorporated in New

A religious non-profit organization was incorporated in New York State in 1978 in Queens County and recognized by the IRS as an exempt 501c3 organization, that same year. It's status was again verified by the IRS in a 2012 determination letter.For more than ten years, the non-profit did not require any bank accounts thanks to donors offsetting its various operating expenses directly.Recently however, the organization saw need to open a bank account (in NY) but upon trying to do so, the bank cited that the organization was "not on file" with NY state department of corporations in their electronic database.Upon following up with the NY department of corporations, they confirmed no record of the nonprofit corporation on file and advised filing a new application.This doesn't make sense as The organization was even issued a sales tax exempt certificate in the 80s by NY state.Question:Is it indeed the case that a new application must be filed with NY state?
