    Where can I find a list of what companies the WTBTS are involved in? - sirona

    Such list is a secret and may be in a vault somewhere in WT's headquarters. We have to dig up the facts. But as with Sadam, they are not cooperating nor telling the truth...

    Ever wondered where your contributions went? What are they're really paying for?

    sf in America and Gerard in Canada. You both appear to have an interest and understanding of business finance.

    I am convinced that it is possible to legally obtain full and complete details of the Watch Towers income and expenditure including investments and I do not believe that this would be difficult. The only reason that I am unable to do it myself is that I am not familiar with the way the Charity laws are structured in your countries and who is the central body with responsibility for controlling the Charitable Organisations there. In the U.K. its the Charity Commission.

    I am not aware of any country where the Tax Laws allow a Registered Charity to obtain the tax benefits of being registered as such without the requirement of completely open accounting. In the U.K. this means that the Charity Commissioners receive the detailed financial reports from every registered charity and will provide these (at a cost) to anyone who requests them.

    I am sure that a similar system must operate in the U.S.A. and Canada. Can you confirm?

    I also asume all accounting info MUST be available to the public. Last timeI tried to find out I bogged down with the technical language used by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Let's see if you or anybody else can make something out of these IRS pages:

    Many thanks Gerry.

    Yes it was difficult getting around that site so I have e-maild the I.R.S. in the U.S. asking them for advice on procedures. I will post again if and when I have something to report.
