The formation and management of a tax-exempt entity can be a complex undertaking. Many legal issues can be addressed, and even avoided, through the advice and counsel of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.
At BSLF, we represent tax-exempt organizations with respect to a wide range of tax-related matters. With dedication to this particular area of the law, our attorneys are well equipped to handle even the most complex and sophisticated concerns that arise, and can identify issues that may become problematic in the future. Leveraging our knowledge and experience, we assist organizations with:
- Entity formation, including private foundations, public charities, grant-making foundations and supporting organizations
- General legal representation of existing public and private charities
- Compliance issues
Assisting in Nonprofit Formation
The creation of a tax-exempt organization, charitable or otherwise, requires in-depth knowledge of federal, state and local laws. In addition, the implementation of a testamentary bequest to charity or the formation of a testamentary foundation pursuant to the provisions of a decedent's will requires assistance from legal professionals who have knowledge of and experience with not only the laws applicable to charities but also the laws applicable to trusts and estates.
We can guide clients through the formation of charitable organizations or other nonprofit entities. Our goal is to help every client achieve his or her objectives with regard to charitable planning and the formation of tax-exempt entities.
