Hi Mitch:  Since this is simply a matter with local government, I would jus=
t call up the treasurer=92s office and ask them the procedure.  It isn =91t=
 something I usually get involved in.  It should be very straight forward, =
and the City will probably be so happy to have someone come to them and be =
proactive about this.  Once we file the application, there were be a letter=
 arriving shortly from the IRS, and this letter could be proof that your ap=
plication is pending.  The City should accept that, if evidence is needed.
Also, as to =93ownership=94, a nonprofit does not have owners,  only respon=
sible parties (i.e. The board or the officers).  I would talk to the City t=
reasurer before volunteering any social security numbers.Rgds,Carolon 10/10=
