A non-profit organization [designated as a 501 (C) (3)] is an organization such as a charity, trade union, or public arts organization. A non-profit does not distribute surplus funds to owners or shareholders, but instead uses these funds to pursue goals in keeping with the purpose of its formation. Examples include committing capital to the construction of a museum, providing housing for lower income families, or providing access to medical supplies and food to the people of an area devastated by a natural disaster. Characteristics of non-profit organizations are:
- Directors and officers are not generally liable for the debts and legal liabilities of the corporation
- Non-profits are exempt from state and federal income tax
- Non-profits are also exempt from state sales and use tax
- Donations made by individuals or corporations to 501(c)(3) nonprofits are tax-deductible
Things to Consider
- Tax-exempt status for non-profits is a privilege and in order to maintain it a non-profit organization must operate in conformity with the law, failure to do so may result in an organization losing its tax-exempt status.
- In Florida non-profits need at least 3 directors.
- In order to be designated a 501(C)(3) organization, your articles of incorporation need special purpose and dissolution clauses.
- Once you have registered your non-profit corporation with the state, you must file form 1023 with the Internal Revenue Service.
Quickncorporate prepares the articles and require a signature from the registered agent before submitting them to the state.
