Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Question for lawyer with experience in nonprofits. I'm working on filling out a Form 1023 to file for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. What are the pluses or minuses of filing form 2848 and having a lawyer represent us? Our organization thought that the fiscal sponsorship relationship we had covered all of our tax reporting needs by including us in the 990s, but we've discovered that because we had to get our own EIN and bank account, we were supposed to file income taxes. Is it best to have a lawyer or an accountant represent us in this case?
