Missouri Department of Revenue & Tax Exempt Letters

Dear PTA Presidents and Treasurers;

I wanted to share with you that I recently talked with Missouri Department of Revenue regarding tax exempt letters.  I had received an updated letter that has no expiration date.  They have changed the letters; there is no longer an expiration date.  They mailed out updated letters on Dec. 15, 2014 to every unit that had a current tax exempt letter as of Dec. 1, 2014.

If your unit has not received an updated tax exempt letter you need to go to their website; www.dor.mo.gov and search for Form 126 Registration or Exemption Change Request.  Here is a direct link; http://dor.mo.gov/forms/126.pdf.

I was told that they had “a ton” of the letters returned to them.  They would have mailed this update to the last address that they had on file.  Please check to see that you have received your updated letter as soon as possible.  If you have not please go online as soon as you can to get your current mailing information changed.  Please mark your envelopes with “Address change” so that it will flag the letter.

I would suggest that you use the school mailing address so that you are assured that in the future any correspondence from them comes to the school and they can get it to you.  Most units have a PTA box in the office.  This should assure that you don’t miss any correspondence.

Each time there is a turn over in your leadership you should fill out this form so that MO Dept. of Revenue has updated mailing information.   This should be added to your procedure book and list of things to do when leadership has a turn over.

Thanks, have a great day!
