About This Course
Non-profit organizations provide tremendous services both to local communities and the federal government. They employ hundreds of thousands of workers, purchase goods and services and utilities, pumping untold millions into the local economy, and paying taxes while providing communities with health care, employment training, disaster relief, food for the homeless, counseling and much more. But what does it take to obtain non-profit status and how does that status impact tax exemptions?
This CLE course will offer a comprehensive review of obtaining non-profit and 501(c)(3) status, the distinction between private foundations and public charities, what types of organizations qualify for exemptions and how the rules apply to hospitals and schools, challenges to exemptions, and the variables between states.
