Non-Profit Formation Lawyer in New Orleans

Protecting Your Tax-Exempt Status

It can be challenging to open a non-profit organization. You may have heard non-profit organizations being called 501(c)(3) organizations. This is because the description of these types of organizations falls under section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has a specific definition for which organizations can be identified as tax exempt. If you do not form your not-for-profit organization correctly, you could lose your tax-exempt status. It is important to both form and maintain your non-profit with an eye to the legal and tax obstacles facing these types of organizations in order to protect your tax exemption for the long term. An experienced New Orleans business lawyer can help you with this process.
