At a recent meeting of the non-profit committee of the American Bar Association (ABA) Business Law, one practitioner stated that she wanted to apply for a tax exemption on behalf of an LLC (without a parent company), but other practitioners in the room thought this would lead to litigation with the IRS and could eventually set a new precedent for a non-profit LLC. To date, no new non-profit has approached them to seek a legal fight, just to become a non-profit LLC. The not-for-profit corporation is the traditional business structure among nontrise organizations, and as such, it is also the most common. Non-profit organizations are based on state law and are therefore subject, after their creation, to state rules and regulations. The reason THAT CLLs cannot benefit from a market valueless exemption (also known as 501c3 status) is that CLLs are proprietary members of LLC, unlike a non-anonymous company that has no shareholders. The only way to use an LLC to hold assets for a not-for-profit corporation is to have LLC as a qualified subsidiary of the not-for-profit corporation. To do so, the only member of the LLC would be the not-for-profit corporation and the management of LLC would only be authorized to carry out activities licensed by its non-profit parent company. This sole member, LLC, led by this member, must be controlled by the same directors and senior executives of the not-for-profit corporation (see CRI Reg. 301.7701-3 and follow. in interpretation by Ann. 99-62 1999-43 I.R.B. 545).
So if you, Bob and Sue, you are the three directors of a non-profit company, they must also run the LLC subsidiary and avoid any activity not authorized by the parent company. Your Nonprofit: the Differences Between Incorporation and LLC by Belle Wong, J.D. Philanthropists often question about training non-profit LLC, which are also commonly referred to as 501c3. Under IRS regulations, LCs cannot inherit the tax exemption directly. You can create a not-for-profit corporation and manage an LLC that is wholly owned by that company. First, it is often difficult to find standard legal documents for non-profit organizations. Several organizations, such as Z. O. Public Counsel, provide excellent business governance models, and tax sponsorship and other documents can be found by searching the internet. But it can be difficult to find examples of other documents, particularly materials related to non-profit programs and other activities that apply specifically to non-profit organizations. We wanted to start by filling that gap in the resource base.
Are you thinking about creating a non-profit organization? In a way, starting a non-profit business is very similar to starting a for-profit business. You start by selecting the most appropriate business structure. The secretary of state in your non-profit organization determines the tax for filing the charter of statutes. Fees are typically between $100 and $1,000. After admission, many non-profit organizations also ask the IRS for recognition of the exemption under Section 501 (c) (3), also known as 501 (c) (3) status.
