The OAS achieves status as a tax exempt organization

501c3Friday, June 12th – Washington, D.C. After months of applications and waiting, the Internal Revenue Service has granted tax-exempt status to the Open Atmospheric Society under the 501(c) 3 section of the U.S. Tax code.

“During the waiting period of the application, the OAS went into a holding pattern mode, while we waited on the process to be completed.”, said acting executive director Anthony Watts.

Now that this status has been granted, the OAS can move forward with the many projects and ideas that are part of the charter.

Look for further announcements in the days and weeks ahead.
