FOR PTA TREASURERS
Treasurers are true heroes in our association! As a nonprofit organization, the Treasurer has a leadership role as both a board officer and perhaps the most important behind the scenes volunteer.
All board members, not just the Treasurer, have fiduciary responsibility for the financial position of their local unit PTA. However, the Treasurer plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of the organization.
The Treasurer's job includes precise tasks that ensure the local unit stays in good standing and meets IRS regulations and standards to keep their nonprofit status.
THE ROLE OF THE LOCAL UNIT TREASURER:

Keeps a full and accurate account of receipts and expenditures;
Makes disbursements in accordance with the budget adopted by the general membership;

Prepares an annual financial report at the close of the fiscal year;
Has the accounts examined according to the financial reporting procedures outlined in your bylaws;
Submits a 990N, 990EZ, or 990 form per IRS regulations; and

WHAT IS IT?:
“Good Standing” allows local units to participate in FCCPTA-sponsored events and programs, leadership trainings, Reflections, scholarship and grant programs, as well as vote in general membership meetings.
In order for Virginia PTA to include your local unit under the group exemption, they must be able to provide the IRS with specific data about your PTA if needed.
Therefore, it's critical that you keep your PTA in "Good Standing" by annually providing the Virginia PTA with documentation that enables them to maintain your 501(c)3 status.
