Nonprofit Taxation

For many years, the Firm has represented a wide array of prominent nonprofit entities including charitable and cultural organizations, health care providers, municipalities, and educational institutions. We assist our clients as they establish their organization as well as obtain determinations of tax-exempt status. We also help nonprofit organizations to monitor and avoid unrelated business taxable income and to reduce state and local property and sales taxes.

Our attorneys are experienced in advising nonprofit organizations on many operating issues, including the structure and consequences of joint ventures, fundraising programs, lobbying and political activities, and potentially unrealized business issues. Our Firm also works to stay at the forefront of the use of Irrevocable Insurance Trusts, Charitable Lead Trusts, and Family Limited Partnerships to reduce estate and gift taxes.
