ADES Audit Update – 8/17/18
We are now four months into the Arizona Department of Economic Security
audit with no resolution. Every two weeks or so we are being asked to
submit more and more information. The audit costs continue to mount up.
As you know, Faith With Works Publishing Company has no employees. We operate with independent contractors only.
FWWPCO is being audited by the Arizona Department of
Economic Security over an erroneously filed Unemployment Insurance
claim. We have had to hire a CPA familiar with these cases, and she has
agreed to represent us in court. We have been advised to seek legal
The ADES has asked for copies of every check, credit card
transaction and all e-mails to the independent contractors for 2016 and
2017. This is in addition to our tax returns and other support material.
It will take 50-70 hours of work by one of our independent contractors
just to get ready for this audit.
The ADES will look at ALL of our independent contractors.
If it is determined that they are employees rather than independent
contractors, we will be forced to pay thousands of dollars in taxes and

- Wally P
Since the release of the Back to
Basics book in 1997, more than 700,000 have been through this "original"
Beginners' Meetings format from the 1940's that produced a 50-75%
recovery rate during the early days of the recovery movement. We are
seeing similar results today in the more than 7,000 meetings held each
week. Click here

Considered by many to be A.A.’s Wake-up
“. . . The alcoholics who participated
in the writing of the “Big Book” didn't wait (to take the
steps). They took the Steps in the first few days following
their last drink. Thank God, there are those in our Fellowship,
like Joe and Charlie, Wally, etc., who have recognized the
problem and have started doing something about it. They are
placing the focus back on the “Big Book.”
Wally P. has no royalty arrangement with Faith With Works
Publishing Company and receives NO income from any literature he
has published nor from CDs / DVDs he has produced. He insists that
is his Twelfth Step work for which he cannot be paid.
We thank you for your interest in our life-saving
Back to Basics A.A. seminars.

After receiving notification from the General Service Office about
our mission statement, the Board of Directors of the Back to Basics Foundation met in a
special session and voted to change the wording of the statement so it would be in
compliance with the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.
The Board also voted to move all materials pertaining to other Twelve Step programs to
separate web sites, so there would be no confusion about the primary purpose of the Back
to Basics Foundation.
We ask for your patience in this matter because, at the present time, we have no means to
accomplish this objective. We have no paid employees, and continue to operate with a
negative cash flow. If it is God's will, there will be sufficient individual
donations to make the wishes of the Board of Directors a reality.
The Back to Basics Foundation is a 501 (C) 3, not-for-profit Corporation dedicated to
saving the lives of alcoholics. Our modified mission statement is listed below.

Mission Statement - Who
The Back to Basics Foundation is dedicated to
saving the lives of alcoholics by showing them the sheer simplicity of the
"original" A.A. program of recovery and by guiding them through the Twelve Steps
as they were taken by many of the A.A. pioneers in the 1940's. During this period of
time, the A.A. recovery rate from alcoholism was 50-75%. We are seeing similar
results today for those who are willing to remain
involved with the Back to Basics A. A. Beginners' meetings for three to six months.
We accomplish our objective by coordinating the recovery efforts of the numerous Back to
Basics A.A. Beginners' meetings and groups, answering questions as they arise, following
up on Twelfth Step calls, and assisting groups with their registration at the local, area,
and General Service Offices. We also conduct one day and weekend seminars based on
the Back to Basics A.A. program and distribute recovery literature and other materials on
the A.A. Beginners' meetings.
