Sometimes, the administrative hurdles you must overcome to obtain tax exempt status, can overshadow the good work you intend to do. Creating a North Carolina nonprofit organization is not difficult, but it is time consuming.

At Fenner's Law, our 'magic formula' for successfully completing IRS Form 1023 is help you draft clear and unambiguous answers. We help you to understand what the IRS expects of you and how you can comfortably meet those expectations.

Obtaining Tax Exempt Status is Worth the Effort

While the paperwork may be tedious, completing it is well worth the effort. Remember, your organization’s profit will be exempt from tax and your donors will be entitled to a tax subsidy.

Nonprofit Creation

By telephone conference and online questionnaire, we review your organization's purpose, its programs and its eligibility for federal and state tax exemption. We form your North Carolina Nonprofit Corporation.
