Tax-exempt organizations are incredibly complicated entities that require a significant amount of work to meet the stringent requirements of both the state and federal governments. Our attorneys are well versed in corporate law, tax law, and the essential needs of a tax-exempt entity. Keith, Miller, Butler, Schneider & Pawlik, PLLC, is able to represent both private foundations and public charities, including schools, museums, churches, social clubs, trade and professional associations, hospitals, and other charitable non-profit entities.
Our firm organizes and incorporates new non-profit entities and helps our clients obtain federal tax-exempt status with the federal and state governments. Following the initial organization, we advise clients on matters of corporate governance, liabilities of directors, fiduciary duties of all parties involved, the avoidance of unrelated business income tax, compliance with tax reporting requirements, the avoidance of excessive benefit transactions, and the avoidance of private inurement. Our goal is to guide our clients through structuring the entity and its transactions in order to best avoid negative tax implications, while simultaneously fulfilling the entity’s objectives.
From formation to dissolution, we are dedicated to providing practical, cost-effective solutions to help non-profits achieve their missions, even if they are facing adverse economic circumstances. Our services are tailored to the specific needs of your charitable entity.
