How To File for a Non-Profit Status

Posted by William Byrnes on February 4, 2011


What are the tax procedures for requesting exempt status recognition?

Generally, an organization seeking recognition of an exempt status is required to submit the appropriate application.  Specifically, an organization seeking recognition of exemption under § 501(c)(3) \ must submit a completed Form 1023.

What fees are required by those requesting an exempt status?

Generally, an application for exemption under § 501(c)(3) includes a $400 fee for organizations that have had annual gross receipts averaging not more than $10,000 during the preceding four years, or new organizations that anticipate gross receipts averaging not more than $10,000 during the first four years.

Application for exemption under § 501(c)(3) includes an $850 fee for organizations whose actual or anticipated gross receipts exceed $10,000 averaged annually.  For those seeking the $400 fee, the Service also requires the organization to sign a certification with their application that the receipts are or will be not more than the indicated amounts.

The Department of Labor Releases Final 401(k) Disclosure Rules

Posted by William Byrnes on November 9, 2010


Fee disclosure rules for 401(k) plans were expected out of the Department of Labor in early 2011, but the Department beat its own estimates, releasing a final rule on plan fee disclosures on October 14, 2010.   The rules impose significant disclosure requirements that are important for everyone associated with self-directed employee retirement plans, including employees and their advisors and plan fiduciaries.

The new rules apply to plan years beginning after November 1, 2011. Although plan administrators have over a year to comply with the new requirements, the disclosure requirements are very extensive—the release that includes the regulations is over 150 pages long—and will require significant action on the part of most plan fiduciaries, so time is of the essence.  Read this complete article at AdvisorFX (sign up for a free trial subscription with full access to all of the planning libraries and client presentations if you are not already a subscriber).
