Treasurer gave report. About $23,000 in savings, $15,000 in CD, $3,000 in checking
The President stated the Association federal taxes were being prepared. Payment was made electronically, along with an extension request. Our accountant also prepared a Pennsylvania tax return and those taxes were paid. It is the President’s opinion that the Association should not owe Pennsylvania income taxes, and an amended return and refund will be pursued. The IRS has also assessed a penalty for not making Association estimated payments, an impossibility given that we did not know when or how much we would receive from the County. The possibility of a refund is being pursued.
Garrison gave a report on the landscaping committee and the shed improvement committee. A master gardener met with Garrison and provided some tips for Pavilion Park. These concerned weeding and suggestions on how and where to mulch. Also she provided some ideas on how to control weeds in flower beds along the fence.
