These images are scanned from the 2003 Form 990 filed with the Internal Revenue Service by Appalachian Educational Communications Corporation (AECC) President (and State of Franklin PAC president) Dr. Kenneth C. Hill. You can find this info online at Guide Star. Some white space has been cropped out in order to reduce the file size.
A review of the Form 990 public inspection tax records filed by the 501(c)(3) tax exempt Appalachian Educational Communications Corporation President Dr. Kenneth C. Hill (also president of the State of Franklin PAC) reveals that Dr. Hill and his fellow board director and wife Janet actually received greater compensation during the last few years of the Clinton Administration than they did during each of the previous five years of the Bush Administration.
The IRS requires 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations to file and to make copies of the Form 990, Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax available for public inspection (and photocopying these public record documents at pre-established rates if so desired by the public) at the offices of the tax exempt entity.
