  • IRS v. OEMR 501c(3)appeals phone conference Wednesday 10/18 1pm est
    • Appeals Office conferences are informal so that you, your representative and the Appeals officer can engage in a frank discussion of the issues in dispute. There is no sworn testimony, and no stenographer is present to record the discussions. Matters alleged as fact must be submitted in the form of an affidavit or declared to be true under penalty of perjury.
      If the Appeals officer considers the issues amenable to settlement, the Appeals officer will ask you to submit an offer of settlement or the Appeals officer will propose the terms of a settlement. If you agree to settle, you’ll be asked to sign a settlement agreement form.
    • IRS proposed determination http://www.open-emr.org/wiki/images/7/76/Oemr_letter_4036.pdf
    • Plan to ask John, our appeals officer at the IRS, if there is anything we can amend organizationally or operationally to help our reintstatement application be amenable to settlement.
  • VCU Hackathon.
  • Marketing.
  • Conference outreach.
  • Raising funds.
  • Conflict of interest policy.
  • Trademarking.
  • Join OSI.

hi, @danielehrlich was able to join the call with the appeals officer today

brief summary:

  • officer agreed with the proposed determination by the irs
  • officer believes open source and 501c3 still uncharted territory
  • thought 501c6 might be a better fit
  • once we receive his letter we will have 90 days to petition the 3 courts

please use 501c research for follow up, thanks
