laptop SMART Transportation Division Auditor Stephen A. Noyes has retired, effective Dec. 31, 2013, after 42 years of continuous membership.

The duties formerly performed by Noyes will now be shared by Transportation Division Auditors Bobby Brantley and Mike Araujo.

Local treasurers who have questions regarding SMART TD’s Winstabs program, federal taxes, Internal Revenue Service forms and local treasurers’ duties should contact Brantley at (216) 502-7225, or by email at bbrantley@smart-union.org, or Araujo at (210) 710-4213, or by email at maraujo@smart-union.org.

UTU local treasurers are not required to file Internal Revenue Service Form 990-N by May 15.

However, said UTU International Auditor Steve Noyes, locals that are required to file IRS Forms 990 and 990-EZ must still file those forms by the May 15 deadline.

Noyes said he was told by IRS representatives that their Web site has been receiving a large influx of people submitting the 990 forms. As a result of the high traffic to the site, the site is experiencing slow response times.

Locals must still file Form 990-N; but not prior to May 15.
