How to Do the 501(c)(3) Thing-Completing IRS 1023 Form

Mon 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

This event has been canceled

Topic: Start-up Assistance

The Question: "Can we get 501(c)(3) status without hiring an attorney or accountant?" The benefits of 501(c)(3) status and the ability to apply for government and foundation grants, can be vital to the success of your non-profit organization. IRS receives tens of thousands of them each year! In 2008, one IRS official estimated that organizations not represented by attorneys, accountants or other tax professionals account for 70% of the exemption applications submitted. (This is down from a similar estimate of 85% in 2002.) This seminar will carefully guide individuals through the 1023 form and provide vital information concerning how to respond to statements and questions needed to satisfy IRS reviewers. Required Materials: Participants should download form 1023 from and bring it to the seminar. The Answer: "Yes, you CAN get 501(c)(3) status on your own."
