Question:  Are there guidelines for arranging carpools?

  • It is critical that if your school or parish wishes to arrange carpools for participants to your various activities, you must take an active role and ensure the guidelines listed here are adhered to. If your parish or school does not wish to actively manage and ensure adherence to the guidelines than your staff and volunteers coordinating the activities should simply provide information on the destination, arrival time and departure time.

Question:  I have leased office equipment and on the invoice there is a charge for Property Tax (or PPT), do I have to pay this even though we are tax exempt?

  • Answer:  Yes.  The owner of the equipment (Lessor) is required by law to pay business personal property taxes on an annual basis to the taxing authorities in the jurisdiction where the leased equipment is located. Under the terms of the lease agreement, you (the lessee) agreed to reimburse the Lessor for any such taxes paid on the leased equipment.

Question:  What do I need to do to get a duplicate title from MVA for a vehicle owned by the parish/school?

  • Answer:  A Duplicate Title must be requested in person at a full service branch MVA.  If a parish, Pastor must present a letter of appointment as the pastor of your location and a valid drivers license which includes date of birth.  A duplicate title costs $20.  Be sure to have a copy of the registration.  Contact MVA if you should have any further questions.

Question:  I need to renew our Food Permit and it is asking for a copy of the Worker’s Compensation Policy.  Where can I get a copy of this policy?

  • Answer:  Effective FY2020, Worker’s Compensation is now handled in the Office of Risk Management.  Annually, our office supplies each location a FY Evidence of Coverage package.  This package includes all Memorandums of Coverage and it now includes the Worker’s Compensation Self Insured Letter of Coverage.  This is provided as close to renewal as possible and should be kept as a resource for when a copy of a COI or evidence of insurance is needed.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Diana Appel, 410-547-5529.
