The California Board of Equalization (BOE) audited Hemopet and determined that sales tax was owed on its blood products. Hemopet is a non-profit and the canine equivalent of the Red Cross. So, a clarification that exempted this tax was necessary. To get this done, a state senate bill had to be drafted.
Originally, Senate Bill 898 clearly and specifically stated:
1. Exempt the sale of animal blood and related products from sales tax
2. Directed the BOE to cancel its current assessment
SB 898 was passed unanimously by the California Senate.
Then, the bill went to the Assembly.
The Assembly Committee on Revenue and Taxation passed the bill with amendments that will allow the BOE to collect approximately $81,000 of prior sales taxes from Hemopet but not collect sales tax on future sales – essentially terminating our non-profit.
Now, the bill moves on to the Assembly Committee on Appropriations.
What Closure Means
1. 40% of the nation’s lifesaving canine blood will no longer be available and shortages will occur.
2. 200 Greyhounds will be placed up for adoption.
3. 45 people will lose employment, which will result in an economic and community organization loss for Orange County.
What Californians Can Do
1. The Assembly Committee on Appropriations will review SB 898 on Wednesday, August 3, 2016. We need you to please contact this committee. Please click here for details and a draft.
2. Adopt Hemopet Greyhounds.
What the Nation Can Do
1. Donate. On top of this, Hemopet and its entities – such as Hemolife Diagnostics Laboratory – ended 2015 with a total loss of $90,000. This loss was covered by Hemopet’s operators. Dr. Dodds does not receive any salary or income from Hemopet. Please visit Hemopet to make a tax deductible donation. You do not need an account with PayPal.
2. Encourage your veterinarian to use Hemopet’s blood products and diagnostic services.
Thank you for your support! – Jean and Hemopet
fite the power doctor jean dodds!!! ok bye
