OccupyBoston Internal Revenue Service and Banking Structure

To open a credit union account, OB needed an Employer Identification Number, provided by the IRS. Gregory Murphy obtained an EIN in the name of OccupyBoston. Currently his mailing address is the IRS address. As soon as an OccupyBoston P.O. Box is secured, FAWG will notify the IRS of this change of address.

Note:  Paul Carnes also obtained an EIN in the name of OccupyBoston and has not shared that paperwork or information with FAWG.


Gregory Murphy obtained a Certificate of Business from the City of Boston. That certificate lists Gregory Murphy dba (doing business as) Occupy Boston Financial Accountability Working Group

Note:  Paul Carnes also obtained a Certificate of Business from the City of Boston. That certificate lists Paul Carnes (we think) dba Occupy Boston. Mr. Carnes has not shared that paperwork with FAWG.


On 10/25/11, members of FAWG opened an account at Liberty Bay Credit Union, in the name of Occupy Boston Financial Accountability Working Group, with a total deposit of $15,819.44, which included $5 LBCU gave us for opening the account. FAWG will make a decision, soon, on whether to move the money in the WePay accounts into this credit union account, or possibly into a trust, for an interim period of time.

Note: It is FAWG's understanding that Mr. Carnes opened an account at the same credit union, on 10/20/11. He has not shared any paperwork with FAWG and maintains that this account is for his fundraising purposes, on behalf of OccupyBoston.
