Delivering Comprehensive Guidance and Support

In today’s complex legal environment, nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations must keep pace with a myriad of federal and state rules and regulations to maintain legal compliance and status. The laws that govern these entities vary from state to state, and organizations must pay careful attention to the statutes and regulations in all the states in which they operate.

At McGill, we understand the diverse challenges confronting tax-exempt and nonprofit enterprises. Our attorneys provide comprehensive services designed to meet the unique legal needs of these entities. We counsel a broad base of nonprofit and tax-exempt clients ranging from charitable, healthcare, and educational organizations to family and corporate foundations. Our lawyers focus on delivering the guidance entities rely upon to successfully manage both their day to day and long-term operations.

Scope of Services Provided to Nonprofit and Tax-Exempt Entities

The team in our Nonprofit and Tax-Exempt group assists organizations in the nonprofit, tax-exempt sector with a wide range of services including:

  • Nonprofit formation.  At McGill, we are experienced in advising clients with all aspects of nonprofit formation, from preparing organizational documents to preparing and filing applications for tax-exempt status with the IRS and other taxing authorities. Our attorneys help clients explore all their options to determine whether a nonprofit structure is the best structure to achieve their specific goals and objectives.
  • Nonprofit operation. Nonprofits must follow strict legal and regulatory requirements. Our attorneys provide assistance with legal issues ranging from general business and transactional guidance to financing, tax controversies, employment law, and employee benefits matters.
  • Tax Exemption. Tax-exempt organizations are closely scrutinized by the IRS, state attorneys general, and other governmental bodies. We assist clients in applying for various types of tax-exempt status and provide ongoing counsel to ensure they are meeting all legal requirements to maintain that status. Our attorneys have experience in obtaining and maintaining exemptions from federal and state income taxation, as well as state and local property, soles, and use taxation. Our objective is to help make certain that our tax-exempt clients properly secure and maintain their exempt status.
