From the Lodge board of officers: The Lodge incurs a considerable amount of overhead expenses to support the management of the electronic pull tab devices that serve our members. Based on the defined adjusted gross receipts the new regulation leaves us with very little income to support the overhead expenses. Changing the adjusted gross receipts to not include the manufacturer 50% should allow the Lodge to continue to operate. Without this change it is very unlikely the Lodge will remain open to our members.
Currently, example of a week adjusted gross receipts after member payout $3,000, 40% results in $1,200. Then $1,500 to the manufacturer. Therefore, 90% of the $3,000 is required for charity and manufacturer leaving the lodge with $300 for overhead expenses.
Proposed, weekly adjusted gross receipts after member and manufacturer payout $1,500. Then 40% of $1,500 is required for charity leaving the lodge with $900 for overhead expenses.
