In a previous post, we discussed how a nonprofit can apply for tax-exempt status. One common misconception that many nonprofit owners have that, once they achieve this status, they don’t have to take any further action. This misunderstanding can land nonprofits in real trouble.

How to get tax-exempt status for your nonprofit

If you’re starting up a nonprofit, you probably have questions. You may have heard that charitable organizations can receive tax-exempt status. However, this designation is not automatic. The IRS has fixed regulations on which organizations are eligible and what they must do to qualify.
