Back Audits The Association has had a backlog of audits dating back to 2007 and has been working to bring them current. This is a one tine charge for four audits.



Annual Cash and Reserves

The Association established dedicated financial accounts for the capital reserves and the emergency reserves in 2009 to prevent commingling of funds. The capital reserves are for future repairs as specified in the reserve study. The emergency reserves are self insurance for those assets of the Association that cannot be insured by commercial insurer.

Long Term Reserve Study

A reserve study was completed and approved by the board in 2010 and approved by a vote of owners in January 2011 (96% to 4%). At that time, the capital reserves are far below the funds need for the repairs outlined in the Reserve Study. The owners voted in 2010 to start an annual reserve with an initial rate of $5,000 year. Current reserve rates are 11% of the annual budget.


A revised report has been drafted for homeowner approval in 2018.

Collections and Legal Action

The Association's collections are done by Dealey Zimmermann & Blend, PC  



Federal and State Taxes

The Beverly Oaks Homeowners Association files federal taxes as an IRS 528 corporation. The IRS describes "528" as a "quasi not-for-profit" class - a for profit corporation with some special considerations. The primary consideration is that the Association can have dues income without paying tax on it. Beverly Oaks has elected this status since 1983. The Association does not have a 501(c) (4) not-for-profit, Federal tax exempt designation letter. The Association has not been issued a sales tax exemption from the state. The Association is not exempt from paying property taxes.

The Association does qualify franchise tax exemption and filed for this exemption in 1987. The Association is required to report to the State every four years to maintain this status.

The Association pays property tax on the roadway, storage garages, cul-de-sac gardens and mailbox peninsulas. The property has been given a nominal valuation of $22,000 in 2009 even though the improvements have a replacement cost of $1,500,000 (road/water lines/sewer).

FEDERAL TAX FORMS 1099 should be prepared and mailed to all contractors by January 30;

FEDERAL TAX FORMS 1096 should be prepared and mailed to IRS listing all 1099’s mailed by January 30;

FEDERAL TAX FORM 1120H should be prepared and mailed to IRS March 15.



Audits

The association shall, as a common expense, annually obtain an independent audit of the records. Copies of the audit must be made available to the unit owners.

An audit required by this subsection shall be performed by a certified public accountant if required by the bylaws or a vote of the board of directors or a majority vote of the members of the association voting at a meeting of the association.
