Nonprofit Tax Exempt Organizations

Our attorneys have experience working with a wide variety of nonprofit organizations, from prominent, publicly supported charities to corporate and family-run private foundations, social clubs and social welfare organizations.  We help nonprofit organizations with the tax (and non-tax) aspects of all phases of their operations, from formation and the initial application for recognition of tax-exempt status, to the ongoing operational tax concerns of nonprofit organizations, such as unrelated business income tax and the prohibited transaction rules, to the merger or dissolution of such organizations on a tax-free or tax reduced basis.  For individuals, we can help incorporate the client’s desires regarding charitable giving into their general estate plan so as to achieve the client’s personal goals while minimizing their tax burden.  We also help clients with issues related to fundraising, grant-making, permissible political and/or lobbying activities, nonprofit governance and best practice issues.
