"POW FOIA Litigation"
Tax Return for 2000


Cash position improves

The front page of Roger Hall's IRS Form 990 for tax year 2000   (October 1999 - September 2000) is displayed below.  Note the entries on Line 22 - - Cash, savings, and investments:

bulletBeginning of year:  $17,487
bulletEnd of year:  $30,226

Thus, the cash, savings, and investments of the "POW FOIA Litigation" project increased by $12,739 in one year.  Not bad for an organization that is constantly complaining on the "MIA activist" websites that they are about to run out of money.

Let's examine some figures on this form

As pointed out above, the cash position of the organization increased from $17,487 at the beginning of the year to $30,226 at the end of the year -- and increase of $12,739 -- a 72 percent increase.  I wish I could increase my cash position by 72 percent a year.

Note that donations were $26,047.  The $12,739 increase in the cash position represents 49 percent of the donations.  I thought donations were supposed to fund operations, not increase the organization's bank account.

But wait -- it gets better -- check out the figures for  2001.
