SANATOGA PA – Two local professionals, an attorney and an accountant, have volunteered their services to help the township Historical Society file paperwork necessary to become a charitable organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service.
Township Solicitor R. Kurtz Holloway, of the law firm Wells Loeben Hoffman Holloway And Stauffer, 635 E. High St., Pottstown PA, and Matthew Cappelletti Jr. of Cappelletti, Pinter & Company, P.C. certified public accountants, 700 Heritage Dr., have agreed to help the society register for Section 501(c)(3) status with the IRS. That allows the society’s donors to claim a tax deduction for their contributions.
Society member and former township commissioner Tom Troutman recently made Holloway aware of the historians’ interest in the IRS recognition, according to the solicitor, who told the township Board of Commissioners of his and Cappelletti’s involvement. The society’s museum, offices and meeting space occupy the former Sanatoga Chapel, 2341 East High St.
