I am newly elected secretary for my tax exempt organization.

Customer Question
What reports to the State...
I am newly elected secretary for my tax exempt organization. What reports to the State are required and how often?
JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.
Customer: My organization is the Guilford Historical Society in Guilford VT. We have had tax exempt status after inception of the organization since 1972. I want to make sure I am complying with State tax requirements for my organization.
JA: Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?
Customer: Yes. Apparently in past years somehow, the EIN # used in annual reporting to the IRS has been a different EIN # from the original and happens to be the EiN # of another organization with the same name located in Maine. From records I have been given, not sure we presently have tax exempt status. I have written to the IRS explaining the use of a different EIN# ***** our original and am awaiting their guidance as how to proceed.
