Nonprofit and Tax Exemption Workshop

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 - 5:30pm to 9:00pm

Wednesday, September 21st | 5:30 PM

Presented by William E. Rattner, Senior Counsel

Now in its 15th year, LCA’s Nonprofit and Tax Exemption Workshops are designed to give you comprehensive – but easy to understand – instructions to apply for both your incorporation and application for tax exempt status. We also provide a broad range of helpful and practical advice, including business, governance and financial matters for start-up nonprofits.

Few attorneys have LCA’s years of experience in these important topics. Our Workshops give you the ability to do everything you would otherwise have to retain a private attorney to do for you.
We cover:

  • Incorporate?
    Reasons to incorporate, reasons not to, and alternatives that can work for you.
  • How to Become a Corporation in Illinois.
    Completing necessary forms, maintaining corporate status, drafting bylaws, statements of corporate purpose, directors’ meetings, filling necessary officers’ positions, and governance matters.
  • Tax Exempt Status -- Do You Need It?
    The reasons to obtain federal tax exempt status, reasons why you might not need to, and some alternatives that may work for you. We also provide advice about maintaining your tax exemption, activities to avoid and other operating issues.
  • How to File for 501(c)(3) Status.
    Line-by-line instructions for completing the tax exemption application, and ways to achieve the best results from the IRS in the review of your application.
How do we know this works? Because those attending the Workshops tell us they’ve received their tax exemption.

Registration Fee:  One person is $100 or $125 for two people from the same organization.  We encourage more than one person to attend. A full package of materials is provided.

Location: 213 W. Institute Place, 1st Floor, Chicago, IL.
