Tax Exempt Qualifications, Compliance and Planning
Satisfying Internal Revenue Service requirements for tax exempt status is critical for non-profits, and we offer counseling on best practices designed to avoid audits. We represent you aggressively if you are denied exempt status, or had your status revoked. Our staff routinely prepares and files Form 1023 and 1024 applications for tax-exempt status for public charities and private foundations. Most of our clients are exempt under 501(c)3 as private foundations or public charities, under (c)4 as social welfare organizations, under (c)6 as business leagues and trade associations, or under (c)7 as social clubs.
