9 Certificate of Incorporation The corporate purposes stated in the certificate of incorporation (or charter ) may include religious, charitable, scientific, literary, and educational purposes. Examples of 501(c)(3) purposes include the operation of churches, schools, senior citizen centers, arts organizations, and economic development agencies. Prior to filing the charter with the Division of Corporations it may be necessary to receive a waiver or consent from a state agency.

20 Other Forms of Nonprofit Organizations Limited Liability Company: prepare articles of organization. Permissible when the members of the LLC are themselves exempt organizations. Unincorporated Association: prepare articles of association. Trust: prepare trust agreement or declaration of trust.
21 Registration Requirements for Charitable Organizations Charities are required to register and file an annual report in states where they provide services or solicit donations. Check with the charities bureau in your state for local requirements. Registration with the charities authorities in multiple states may be required depending on the level of activity in those states. Regular and on-going solicitations in a state typically trigger the registration requirement.
22 State and Local Tax Exemptions Check with state tax authorities to find out how nonprofit organizations may obtain exemption from corporate, sales and real property taxes. State and local exemptions are routinely granted to 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations.
23 PART III Applying for 501(c)(3) Federal Tax Exemption
24 Can an Organization Be Tax Exempt Without Receiving an IRS Tax Determination Letter? A donation to a church, or to an organization with less than $5,000 in annual gross receipts, is deductible by the donor as a charitable contribution whether or not the organization has applied for and received tax-exempt status from the IRS. Many churches and most small organizations nevertheless apply for 501(c)(3) status to eliminate any doubt regarding their tax exempt status and to make donors more comfortable.
25 Which Nonprofits are Eligible for 501(c)(3) Status? The organization must be organized and operated exclusively for one of the following purposes: Religious Charitable Scientific Literary Educational Prevention of cruelty to children or animals Testing for public safety Fostering national or international sports competition
26 Applying for 501(c)(3) Federal Tax Exempt Status Obtain an Employer Identification Number ( EIN ) using IRS Form SS-4. Complete and file IRS Form 1023 for recognition as a 501(c)(3) organization. File Form 1023 within the first 27 months of the nonprofit s incorporation and the exemption, if granted, will be retroactive to the postmarked date of the application.
27 Key Elements of the Form 1023 Corporate documents: Bylaws (or operating agreement). Certificate of incorporation (or articles of organization, or trust instrument). Conflict of interest policy. Part IV (Narrative Description of Activities): Detailed description of past, present, and future activities. Part IX (Financial Data): Detailed financial information: a statement of revenues and expenses and a statement of assets and liabilities.
28 PART IV Other Considerations
29 Limits on 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Organizations Organizational test: The certificate of incorporation (charter) of the nonprofit must provide: That it is organized exclusively for an exempt purpose described in Section 501(c)(3). That in the event of dissolution, assets will be distributed to another 501(c)(3) organization or to a government entity for a public purpose.
30 Limits Related to the Operational Test Operational test: The organization must be operated to further the exempt purposes stated in the charter. In addition: No intervention in political campaigns. Only limited activity to influence legislation. No excessive financial benefit to insiders or other private interests. Business activity that is unrelated to the nonprofit s exempt purpose must be limited.
31 Public Charities Versus Private Foundations Typically, public charities carry out charitable activities while private foundations support them. Public charities have many advantages over private foundations, including: Less burdensome reporting requirements. Need not distribute a portion of revenues to other charities. Individuals and corporations may make more generous contributions to public charities than to private foundations. Exempt from certain taxes.
32 Federal Reporting Requirements for Exempt Organizations IRS Form 990, 990-EZ, or 990-N Form 990: required to file if the organization s revenues exceed $100,000 per year. Form 990-EZ: may be filed if the organization s gross receipts are less than $100,000 and its assets are less than $250,000. Form 990-N ( e-postcard): must be filed if gross receipts are less than $25,000. Form 990-T: required to file if the organization has more than $1,000 in unrelated business income.
33 Fiscal Sponsorship Fiscal sponsors are 501(c)(3) organizations that receive tax deductible contributions on behalf of organizations that have not yet obtained 501(c)(3) status: A fiscal sponsor is responsible for the proper expenditure of the funds it disburses to a non- 501(c)(3) organization. The fiscal sponsor must exercise control over the funds and discretion over their expenditure.
34 Fiscal Sponsorship (continued) A fiscal sponsor and the non-501(c)(3) organization should have consistent purposes. A written fiscal sponsorship agreement should be entered into setting forth the terms of the fiscal sponsorship.
