What is a Florida Nonprofit Corporation?

A Florida Nonprofit Corporation is sometimes called a Florida Not-For-Profit Corporation.

A Florida Nonprofit Corporation is an organization that is legally registered with the Florida Secretary of State.  While the federal government must approve the tax-exempt status of a Florida Nonprofit Corporation, a Florida Nonprofit Corporation is not initially registered with any US government agency.   more...

Do I need a lawyer to Form a Florida Nonprofit Corporation?

The short answer is no. The state of Florida does not legally require a lawyer to form a Florida Nonprofit Corporation.  However, if there is anything about forming a Florida Nonprofit Corporation that you're not sure about you should seek the advice of a competent Florida lawyer, a Florida accountant, or both BEFORE you Incorporate.   more...

What are the most common types of Florida Nonprofit Corporations?

Who owns a Florida Nonprofit Corporation?

No one person or group of people can own a Florida Nonprofit Corporation.  Once it is incorporated, the Florida Nonprofit Corporation is a separate legal entity from its founders, directors, officers, and employees.  The Florida Nonprofit Corporation itself owns assets of the business and is entitled to receive all revenues from its operation.  Any equity in a Florida Nonprofit Corporation belongs to the organization itself, not to the founders, board of directors or staff.

In addition, a Florida Nonprofit Corporation cannot be sold to another individual, corporation or organization.

Can a Florida Nonprofit Corporation make money?

Contrary to popular belief a Florida Noprofit Corporation may actually make a profit.  Many Florida Nonprofit Corporations derive much of their funding from tax-exempt donations.  Sometimes a Florida Nonprofit Corporation can receive more in donations that the costs to actually run the organization.   more...

Are all Florida Nonprofit Corporations Tax Exempt?

The state of Florida does not have a Corporate income tax so there is no need for a Nonprofit Exemption from Florida Corporation income taxes.

Certain Florida Nonprofit Corporations may qualify for Exemption from Florida Sales and Use Taxes.

The Florida Department of Revenue will issue a Consumer's Certificate of Exemption to each FL Nonprofit Corporation that qualifies for an Exemption.  The Exemption Certificate is valid for five years after which the Certificate may be renewed.

What is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Corporation?

501(c) refers to a section of IRS code which deals with tax exempt organizations including, but not limited to, Nonprofit Corporations.   more...

What information does a Nonprofit need before it can apply for 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Status?

BEFORE a Nonprofit applies with the IRS for 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt status you need the following information:
  • Articles of Incorporation approved by the Florida Secretary of State
  • Bylaws
  • Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Statement of purpose that meets IRS requirements
  • Statement that your Nonprofit Corporation will not engage in prohibited political or legislative activity
  • A Plan of Dissolution describing the distribution of assets upon dissolution
  more...

What happens when a Florida Nonprofit Corporation wants to shut down?
