Monday’s news items [starting a non profit; Mrs. PA; A.I.; better ways to learn; & more] – 7/15/2019

There are steps to take | to start a non profit. There’s a lot more to it than just saying it. 

This process is very similar to creating a regular corporation except that you have to take the extra steps of applying for tax-exempt status with the IRS and their state tax division. These are the steps to take to incorporate your nonprofit:

  • Choose a business name – Make sure to check the state-by-state information on the various laws that apply to naming a nonprofit in your state.
  • Appoint a Board of Directors – Draft your bylaws with guidance from your Board of Directors. These are the operating rules for your nonprofit.
  • Decide on a legal structure – Choose whether your organization will be a trustcorporation, or association.
  • File your incorporation paperwork – You must next file formal paperwork, or articles of incorporation, and pay a small filing fee to your state. Look up your state office through the National Association of State Charity Officials (NASCO).
  • Apply for tax-exempt status – A nonprofit organization may be eligible for exemption from federal income tax. The IRS provides guidance and instructions on applying for tax-exempt status. Learn more about federal tax exemption requirements in IRS Publication 557 – Tax-Exempt Status for Your Organization (PDF, Download Adobe Reader) or by calling the IRS Tax Exempt and Government Entities Hotline at 1-877-829-5500.

Today’s weather will be a dream | but then LOOK OUT: “Monday will feature plenty of blue sky, no rain, low humidity, and slightly cooler temperatures. It will be the coolest day of the week, ahead of potentially dangerous summertime heat.” – FOX43-TV
