Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin, DVD Salesman

The Justice Through Music Project web site (No, I won’t link to it.) has a page that offers a Rock Your Rights DVD for sale. There’s a notation on the page that the DVD is “sold out.”jtmp20130130

Apparently, TDPK had to give away all of the DVDs because JTMP must not have sold any. I say that because the 2011 IRS Form 990 for JTMP shows no revenue from any sources other than Contributions and grants. Since someone buying one of the DVD receives “something of value” (the DVD can, after all, be use as a drink coaster), so any payments for purchasing them are not strictly contributions and might be more properly reported as Program services revenue.

That’s not the only interesting information (or lack of information) in this Form 990.

Stay tuned for further comments.

  1. So what you’re saying, is that corporate sales of JTMP products were improperly reported or not reported at all and may have wound up in someone’s personal bank account? Fascinating.

  2. Did see a couple of potentially interesting things in there — but, not 100% sure what all I’m looking at. Just a few lines that seemed odd to me…
