Local Unit Compliance

6 steps PTA/PTSA Compliance

Ensuring your local unit is in “good standing.”

  1. Register your PTA/PTSA officers with Florida PTA here
  2. 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 treasurer@dccpta.org and audit@floridapta.org, as well as your school’s bookkeeper  
  3. 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 treasurer@dccpta.org and 990@floridapta.org
  4. Operate your PTA/PTSA under current bylaws (expired if dated before 10/01/19).  To update your bylaws, use this 2022-2023 Local Units Bylaws form
  5. Pay your annual DCCPTA dues ($50.00) exclusively in MemberHub no later than November 1st. 
  6. 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.

Noncompliance may result in:

  • No PTA/PTSA activities, events, or programs for children at your school
  • Suspension of all spending until your audit is submitted (membership dues collection only)
  • Loss of PTA/PTSA leadership confidence by members
  • Complaints
  • Your local unit being deemed ineligible to receive DCCPTA and/or FLPTA recognition awards or participate in the Reflections program
  • Loss of tax-exempt status
  • Graduating seniors (student PTSA members) may be ineligible to apply for DCCPTA and/or FLPTA scholarships through their local unit
  • Membership decline
