Tax rules for your nonprofit — stay legal and keep the IRS off your back


Your nonprofit enjoys special privileges not available to other organizations — but they come at a price. Nonprofits must comply with rules and regulations that don’t apply to for-profit ventures. Every Nonprofit’s Tax Guide explains these rules and what your nonprofit must do to maintain your tax-exempt status and avoid problems with the IRS.
This practical, thorough, and easy-to-read book explains both ongoing and annual compliance requirements for nonprofits, including:

  • rules for charitable giving and cash donations
  • Form 990
  • unrelated taxable business income
  • annual IRS filings and disclosures
  • property donations
  • bookkeeping basics
  • working with independent contractors and volunteers
  • restrictions on lobbying and political activities

Plus, the book also includes a chapter on the types of transactions that can get your nonprofit in hot water with the IRS.

“(Nolo’s)…material is developed by experienced attorneys who have a knack for making complicated material accessible.”
