Baja Dogs La Paz Financials
Baja Dogs La Paz, Inc. is a U.S. non-profit charity operating under the Internal Revenue Service (I.R.S.) code 501(c)(3). This status gives donors a U.S. tax deduction when they make a contribution to Baja Dogs La Paz, Inc.
We also operate a Mexican Charity named “Voluntarios por Los Perros de La Paz, A.C” with the “A.C.” standing for “asociación civil.” This allows us to have a Mexican bank account and also requires reporting to Servicio de Administración Tributaria on a monthly basis as well as at year end. The Mexican charity gives us the ability to apply for grants and assistance within Mexico. It also assures transparency to donors and supporters so that we always remain 100% accountable.
The Mexican and US charities share some of the same board members for purposes of continuity between both organizations.
