I agree with remylass. I've been working on my haunt for almost five years now. I don't make a dime from it, every penny goes to a pit bull rescue center here. I've attempted on more than one occasion to achieve non-profit status, with no luck so far. I usually pay the taxes out of pocket, and let the lady who runs the center keep what we earn for her. The way these people are abusing the non-profit status nauseates me, and I hope it comes back to bite them in the arse.
Glad you've gotten most of your stuff back, and I hope you end up getting the remainder, as well.
