New Reimbursement Rules in September 2018

Posted by cgibson on Aug 9 2018 - 9:41am

Fellow Scouters: I have been informed of a new Council Policy everyone needs to be aware of. As a Non-Profit Organization, the Boy Scouts of America should not be paying Sales Tax, yet we have been doing so in reimbursements to volunteers for years.

Starting September 6, 2018, the Capitol Area Council will no longer reimburse volunteers for Sales Tax on purchases made on behalf of the Council. If you turn in receipts for reimbursements with Sales Taxe on them after September 6, the Sales Tax will be deducted from your reimbursement. 

To avoid paying Sales Tax on a purchase made on behalf of the Capitol Area Council, please download and use this form. The business in question may ask for a Tax ID #. They do not need this as is clearly stated on the attached Comptroller's form. However, rather than argue with them you can give them this number: 74-1143057. 

Give me a call at 512-748-1849 if you have any questions!

Girls in Scouting Informational Session

Posted by cgibson on Apr 13 2018 - 1:56pm

The Boy Scouts of America’s volunteer-led board of directors recently unanimously approved a plan to welcome girls and young women into all Scouting programs.

There will be a General Informational session on this new policy held in Westlake Hills at St. John Neuman Catholic Church on Tuesday April 24th at 7:00 PM. Volunteers from Capitol Area Council will be on hand to answer questions and present what is known about the new Programs so far.

Please share the attached flier with everyone in your units, and your social media networks, so we can get as much coverage as possible to invite interested families!
