S CORPORATION TAX ELECTION
The Board of Directors considered the advantages of electing S Corporation tax status for the Corporation under Section 1362 of the Internal Revenue Code. After discussion, which included a report from the treasurer that the Corporation’s accountant had been consulted and concurred with the board’s decision, it was agreed that the Corporation shall elect S Corporation tax status with the IRS.
It was further agreed that the treasurer of the Corporation be delegated the task of preparing and filing IRS Form 2553 and any other required forms in a timely manner so that the S Corporation tax election will be effective starting with the 2013 tax year of the Corporation.

The Board of Directors of the Company has executed this memorandum effective July 9, 2013 to record the actions taken without a formal meeting for the purpose of waiving the requirements of a formal meeting.
