REMINDERS

Boundary Maps - Remember to check the online maps in the data center to make sure your maps are correct.  I have said multiple times since last year that this will be the deciding factor, not any hand shake agreement or what you understand you boundary to be.  So please review.

 

Little League® Data Center adds ASAP:

As Little League® International continues to develop online options to service its leagues and districts, be aware that the Little League Data Center now provides for online ASAP Plan submission. If local league plans are approved by Monday, April 2, 2018, that District will receive a cash award as result of the ASAP participation incentive. For a local league to receive the credit award, the submission deadline is April 16, 2018.

• To submit your 2018 Season ASAP Safety Plan online, log in to the Little League Data Center and choose "Submit/View 2018 Season ASAP Safety Plan."

• For 2018, it is required that local leagues charter using the Little League Data Center and also submit the necessary information for split leagues, Interleague Play and Combined Teams.

Little League® has updated its Regulations, Playing Rules, and Operating Polices for the 2018 season. Please review the adjustments and become familiar with the changes and revisions to the guidelines that govern the Little League Baseball® and Little League Softball® programs.

Tax Exempt Status Reminder:

It is the local league's responsibility to submit a federal tax return to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Any non-profit organization that does not file the proper 990 Form with the IRS for three consecutive years automatically loses its federal tax exemption resulting in the organization's income becoming taxable and contributors being unable to report their contributions as tax deductions. This year's filing deadline is February 15, 2018 . Please include the League I.D. Number and Employer Identification Number (E.I.N.) on the tax return along with the correct name and address of the current League President. Each separately chartered league, even if operated by the same board, is required to have its own E.I.N. and file a separate return. Forms and instructions are available on the IRS website at www.IRS.gov. The address where the tax return should be filed is: Internal Revenue Service Center -- Ogden, Utah 84201-0027

It is also the responsibility of each league to furnish Little League Baseball® Incorporated with a copy of your league's annual financial report. This is a requirement of any league enrolled under the Little League Federal Group Tax Exemption and 501(c)(3) organizational status. There is a sample financial statement in the Little League resource guide and on LittleLeague.org. Please be sure your League I.D. Number is noted on the financial statement. If you haven't already done so, please forward a copy of your league's financial statement to: 

Little League Baseball, Incorporated
539 U.S. Highway 15
P. O. Box 3485
Williamsport, PA 17701-0485
