|According to the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service on June 30, 2009, the city is complying with some but not all federal tax obligations. RUBA continues offering assistance to city staff as they review federal tax obligatons and is presently awaiting a response from the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service to update the federal tax status for this report.
On December 29, 2009 the Alaska Department of Labor (DOL) reported the city is meeting Alaska ESC tax obligations for the quarter ending September 30, 2009, an improvement over the prior quarter.
City staff uses a spreadsheet based payroll system provided by RUBA in recent years. In prior quarters, RUBA reviewed the spreadsheet formulas, made improvements to the spreadsheet, and provided guidance to the administrator on proper payroll procedures.|
