Default Cal Tax Exemption

Just got my Exemption paperwork and it includes a new requirement for
"Certificates of Attendance" for last year, I didn't get anything like that
at the events, is this a retro requirement for last year?

It sounds like an attempt by the local tax man to circumvent your tax
exemption.

Unfortunately, it is not. The Californicate legislature, in its infinite
wisdom, passed this little jewel of a clause in the September session. THe
kicker is that NEXT year's exemption is based on LAST year's exhibitions.

My county assessor said that of COURSE you can't be held liable for something
you were supposed to do before the law passed (something about "ex post facto")
and that a letter to that effect THIS year would suffice.

Next year, however, every place you exhibit has to sign off that you were really
there. EAA has been advised and is planning on how to take care of the national
and regional shows.

Can't you just see Tom P. signing 25,000 certificates in the middle of that zoo
in July {;-)

If that's the case, maybe the alphabet organizations should post
certificates as pdf files on the web.

chapters are planning to do the same thing.
