Effective Date of Rule: July 1, 2010.
Purpose: We provide forms used for reporting annual progress to the licensee. These forms notify licensees that the form should be returned no later than one hundred twenty days after their fiscal year end. Before the rules simplification project (RSP), our rules required charitable and nonprofit licensees to provide several pieces of information demonstrating that they met required progress toward meeting their stated purpose. The former version of this rule required this information to be submitted to the commission no later than one hundred twenty days after the end of the licensee's fiscal year. The licensee could also request an extension to submit the forms. This requirement was originally part of one long rule. During RSP, the long rule was broken into two rules and the one hundred twenty day requirement and the extension were omitted from one of the rules. This amendment restores:
(1) The one hundred twenty day reporting requirement for our largest charitable and nonprofit licensees to report the required annual progress after the end of each fiscal year; and
(2) The licensee's ability to request an extension to submit the forms; and
(3) Housekeeping: Minor wording changes to subsections (1) and (2), "and" was added consistently between subsections, and subsections were renumbered.
