5 Common Pitfalls

And how working with us will help you avoid them

 


 

Pitfalls cause problems such as costly delays at the beginning and even, months and years after the nonprofit is formed.  

With our expertise, you can be confident that your paperwork will be filed correctly and quickly.  Even if you've started some of the process before working with us, we'll evaluate what you've completed and work with you to complete any and all remaining steps, including making any corrections that may be needed.  

 


 

 

 

PITFALL# 1

Filing Articles of Incorporation with Errors

→We make sure every nonprofit articles of incorporation we complete for our clients include the IRS exemption language.  This is important even if the nonprofit hasn't decided to apply for federal tax exemption because if they ever decide later on, the original Articles of Incorporation will already have the mandatory language.  This saves time and money from having to file an amendment to the Articles.
