A Non-Profit Corporation is an entity formed for purposes other than making a profit. Nonprofit corporations are formed according to different state laws than standard for-profit corporations; however, creating a nonprofit is very similar. Nonprofits must apply for federal and state (if applicable) tax-exempt status to be considered tax-exempt.

Tax-exempt status is not automatically granted once the nonprofit corporation is formed. Form 1023 must be filed with the IRS to apply for federal tax-exempt status. See Below.


Like other standard for-profit corporations, nonprofits provide limited liability protection. The personal assets of the directors or officers typically cannot be used to satisfy the debts and liabilities of the nonprofit.

To qualify for federal tax-exempt status under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, the nonprofit must be organized and operate for some religious, educational, charitable, scientific, or literary purpose permitted under this code.

Advantages of a nonprofit corporation:


  • Directors are typically not personally responsible for the debts and liabilities of the nonprofit corporation.

  • Nonprofit corporations can apply for both federal and state tax-exempt status.

  • Certain nonprofit corporations are eligible to receive public and private grants, making obtaining operating capital easier.

  • With 501(c)(3) nonprofits, donations made by individuals to the nonprofit corporation are tax-deductible.

To form a nonprofit corporation, nonprofit articles of incorporation or a nonprofit certificate of incorporation must be filed with the appropriate state agency, and the necessary state filing fees paid. The formation documents must include specific clauses and information, such as a detailed business purpose statement, for the entity to qualify for tax-exempt status. After that, form 1023 must be filed with the IRS.

All formations come with the following:

  • Preliminary Name Check with the State
