Nonprofit, tax exempt and 501(c)(3) Organizations

Do you need a nonprofit tax attorney to help form your organization? Did its nonprofit status get revoked?

Applying for and maintaining nonprofit tax exempt status can be complicated. Nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, such as a 501(c)(3), must comply with endless federal and state laws so they do not jeopardize their tax exempt status.

The Board of Directors/Trustees must follow certain fiduciary rules to avoid personal liability, even if they are volunteers. 

Finally, the nonprofit organization must comply with all corporate requirements of a traditional company, PLUS navigate the Internal Revenue Code requirements. Attorney Laura Anastasia Brown provides nonprofit legal services with decades of experience throughout the Boston area and Massachusetts.

Why did the IRS revoke our tax-exempt status?

Can our organization still continue to fund raise? Will we have to pay taxes now?

Why does the Board of Directors/Trustees need insurance if we are just volunteering?

What happens if our 501(c)(3) organization makes a profit?

What federal and state documents do we have to file every year so we don’t lose our nonprofit tax exempt status?
