Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin’s “charities” have had chronically sloppy accounting. This post from ten years ago toady, Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin, DVD Salesman, cites one of his IRS Form 990 filings.

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.

BTW, the IRS still hasn’t posted the 2020 Form 990 for Justice Through Music Project.
