Contact our knowledgeable nonprofit law attorney

Are you thinking of setting up a nonprofit in the Plano, Texas area for something you are passionate about? Macy has worked in the area of nonprofits for the majority of her career and has extensive experience in forming both for-profit and nonprofit entities. In addition, she serves on the board of trustees of several nonprofit corporations.

How is a nonprofit set up?

Tax laws and regulations relating to organizations that are operated exclusively for charitable purposes are extremely complicated. A nonprofit entity that is organized under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 must include certain provisions in its formation and operating documents.

There are rules about:

•What activities may be pursued.
•Restrictions on the use of income to the organization.
•Rules about the use of funds remaining upon dissolution.

A nonprofit organization is permitted to make a profit-the profit must be used in furtherance of its exempt purposes rather than being distributed to shareholders or private individuals.

Macy would be delighted to speak with you about setting up a nonprofit corporation and applying for tax exempt status with the Internal Revenue Service. Upon receiving a favorable determination, the organization can raise funds from donors that allow the donors to take a deduction from their income before calculating the tax owed. Further, upon receiving a favorable determination from the federal government, the exemption generally extends to state law issues as well.

Let Macy discuss your ideas with you and guide you down the path to a successful mission. Contact our Plano, Texas law office today to schedule an appointment!
