Additional OA SV Info for Meeting Groups

To Meeting Treasurers:

When you send a contribution to Intergroup, please include the day, time and location of the meeting. Please include your telephone number on the check. Also, if you want the Intergroup to send 30% of your contribution to OA World Service and 10% to OA Region 2, please put 60/30/10 on the check in the memo section. Send it to OASV Intergroup, P.O. Box 5603, San Jose, CA 95150.

To Meeting Treasures or Literature Persons:

Since OA World Service does not charge California State sales tax on literature purchases, we are responsible for paying that sales tax to California ourselves. To make it easier, you can send an additional check to the intergroup for 8.75% of the cost of whatever literature you order from World Service. The Intergroup will then collect the money and send the appropriate amount to the State of California once a year.
