5 steps PTA/PTSA Compliance (a.k.a “Good Standing“)
- Register your PTA/PTSA officers with Florida PTA here
- Complete and submit your audit IMMEDIATELY (due August 31st) using the FLPTA Audit form and DCCPTA Audit form, if you have not done so. Submit a copy of each to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, as well as your school’s bookkeeper
- Ensure you file your applicable IRS form 990 by November 15th to the IRS and FLPTA by November 30th – See instructions here . Send a copy of the ACCEPTED return to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com

- Pay your annual DCCPTA dues ($50.00) exclusively in MemberHub no later than November 1st. Submit National and State membership dues ($3.50 per membership sold) MONTHLY via MemberHub or mail, along with the dues payment form, to Florida PTA.
