Exempt Organizations

The terms exempt organization or non-profit may lead some to believe these entities avoid the world of taxation completely. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Perhaps surprisingly, non-profits and other exempt organizations often have more tax filing obligations than some for-profit businesses. For instance, failure of for-profit organizations to file business or individual income tax returns comes with monetary penalties, but the failure of exempt organizations to file the required tax returns may not only mean monetary penalties but the potential loss of its tax-exempt status, which could result in dire consequences.

From non-deductibility of contributions from donors, to massive tax obligations for the organization, the loss of tax exempt status is massive. The exempt organization filing is not only a monetary report but also a report on the operations of the organization. Improper completion can also have negative consequences when viewed by potential donors.
