Okay, thank you very much for your patience on this. I absolutely positively do not mean to oversimplify your situation, but many people have asked this question and I’ve looked hard for a site that helps break it down step by step. If you click here, you can find out the necessary requirements to help you get started with a non-profit specifically in NY. Again, I don’t mean to not answer your question, it’s just that nolo.com is a trusted source that breaks down information in a meaningful and excellent way. Did you have any other questions for me?

Well the link you sent me is just a website who incorporate the business. well we already have the corporation ready now we have to get 501-3c status from IRS and I was asking you the procedure for that. Thank you!
Business Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

Oh I understand. You'll need to fill out form 1023 (or a 1023-EZ if you are a smaller organization). You would need fill out the form (click here) and then submit it to irs.gov/form1023. It's a $275 fee to file. You'll want to check all of the necessary boxes and have an officer or director of the organization sign it then wait for the IRS's approval.
