I have a client who...
I have a client who created a non profit to collect Gofundme donations for their daughter. Do they have to file taxes? I know normally gifts up to a certain amount are not taxable, but they received a 1099-INT from the bank. If they file, do they file just to claim the income from the 1099-INT? And what tax form should they file?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
they have income from their jobs, separate from the non profit. The 1099-INT was for the nonprofit account they set up for the gofundme. the bank gave them a $250 bonus for opening the account

Is the $250 the amount showing on the 1099-INT?

Ask Your Own Tax Question

Based on the following information, the answer is no, they do not need to report the amount. SEE BELOW:

-------------------------------

General Rule

By and large, interest is not subject to income tax for nonprofit corporations. For example, if a donor contributed corporate bonds to a charity, the charity could receive the interest from the bonds without recognizing taxable income.
