Incorporating as a nonprofit paves the way for success. Because they’re established to serve a public purpose rather than shareholder interest, nonprofits may be exempt from income, sales, and property taxes. Incorporating also makes it easier to obtain grants and donations. And finally, the laws governing nonprofit corporations simplify officer roles and responsibilities. CT’s experts make the road to incorporation a smooth one.
First, you’ll specify your mission in your Articles of Incorporation, which CT will help you file with the state. Then, you’ll designate a Registered Agent to receive official documents on your behalf. You must also follow state naming rules and secure an employer ID number (EIN) for taxes and banking.
Nonprofit corporations are formed to benefit a specific public purpose, whereas for-profit corporations work to benefit their owners and shareholders. A nonprofit loses its tax-exempt status if there’s any benefit to a private individual who controls it. Lastly, nonprofits are eligible for preferential treatment at the state and federal levels.
