California Franchise Tax Board Guidance

The California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) sent out letters to most of the Councils, Assemblies, and Chapters in California in February and March of this year. Here is some additional guidance recently received from the FTB.

All correspondence filed with the Franchise Tax Board must include the 7-digit corporation number assigned to the subordinate organization. This number can be located on the determination letter.

If a subordinate has received more than one determination letter with different corporation numbers assigned as a result of a duplicate name, please contact our office so that we can clear the duplicate account.

To avoid unintentionally re-naming the subordinate organization, please use the following format on all returns and correspondence:
Name (Council, Assembly, or Chapter)
Number (Council or Assembly)
Knights of Columbus, or simply KOC
For example:
Father John Smith Council #123 Knights of Columbus
Bishop John Smith Assembly #123 KOC

State Deputy Abe Doliente's July Message

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Worthy Brother Knights:

I would like to thank you all for giving me your confidence to lead California State Council for Columbian year 2014-2015.
As we begin the new Columbian year, let us pause a moment and reflect on the achievements and accomplishments of the past leaders. California has always had great leaders who guided us successfully year in and year out. Can we maintain that leadership and have California stay where it belongs? You as members of the California Knights of Columbus play a major role in the success of the coming year.

We have gathered what I believe the best group of leaders to have a very successful year. With Fr. John Neneman as the State Chaplain, Ed Huestis as the State Secretary, Sonny Santa Ines as the State Treasurer, Romy Quevedo as the State Advocate, Joe Salaiz as the State Warden and Tim Carvalho as the Immediate Past State Deputy, we can’t go wrong. In addition, we have Membership under the leadership of Michael Brault, Programs under the leadership of John Bertrand, and Operations under the leadership of PSD Dr. Ray Warriner,

We have 148 District Deputies and about the same number of Committeemen.

But the State Officers, Directors and Committeemen cannot do the job alone; nor can the District Deputies by themselves, nor can the Chapter Officers alone; nor can the Assembly Officers alone; nor can the Council Officers alone, but together, we, as a team can make California as successful as in the previous years.

So, my brothers who are members of the California Knights of Columbus, can I count on you to be a part of the team? I hope and pray so.

"To God Be The Glory"
Abe Doliente
State Deputy
