EPX has been a nonprofit 501(c) (3) for over a year now and as a charitable institution people may make tax deductible contributions to our treasury. Now EPX may also make purchases without paying PA sales tax. EPX has received written confirmation that, retroactively to February 6, 2008, our application for PA State Sales Tax exemption has been approved. Now EPX members will be able to purchase materials for the association’s purposes using funds from our coffers and not have to pay any sales tax. EPX can now be considered “fully incorporated” having all our Governance documents in place; Constitution/Bylaws, State Incorporation, Published Legal Notices, Federal Non-Profit and State Sales Tax Exemption completed and approved.
