Guidance For Nonprofits On Obtaining 501(c)(3) Status
As municipal law attorneys, we work closely with issues involving 501(c)(3) status. Section 501(c)(3) of the tax code exempts nonprofit organizations from federal income tax. This status can apply to nonprofits, including foundations, corporations and educational organizations. We educate clients about the advantages and disadvantages of obtaining 501(c)(3) status and provide legal counsel during the application process.
