Introducing Tax-Exempt Organization: What’s the Purpose of It All? (ITEO2)

NEW! 2-Hour Program

WHY ATTEND THIS COURSE?

The three most important principles to remember about tax exempt organizations are: Purpose, Purpose, and Purpose. An organization desiring to be exempt from regular income taxation must have a tax-exempt purpose that corresponds with those listed in the Internal Revenue Code; it must demonstrate its tax-exempt purpose in the operation of the organization, starting in year one, then continuing throughout its existence; and the actions of the organizers, directors, and officers of the organization must be consistent with the overall purpose for which the organization received its exemption. This introduction to tax exempt organizations identifies circumstances under which an organization may and may not be granted exemption. It describes the process for requesting tax-exempt status. Then it introduces basic concepts on which to build an organization that will be allowed to remain tax exempt.
