Of the thousands of nonprofit organizations registered in the state of Kansas, very few have the time, energy or resources to stay on top of the ever-changing legal requirements imposed on nonprofits at both the state and federal levels.
Regardless of their size or budget, all nonprofit groups must fully comply with Kansas state law to receive tax-exempt status or be a legal entity recognized by the state. Not only is this work complicated and time-consuming, but attempting to do it yourself only takes away from time you could be spending on your nonprofit's mission.
If you currently operate a Kansas nonprofit or have plans to found one, the experienced nonprofit attorneys at Beck & Gunn Law can provide the guidance you need.
A key concern for most nonprofit entities is obtaining and maintaining tax-exempt status. An exemption from state and federal taxes allows your nonprofit to put more of its resources into the important work of helping people. Additionally, most donations to tax-exempt organizations are tax-deductible, making it critical for organizations to get and keep tax-exempt status for fundraising purposes.
Beck & Gunn have the skills and experience needed to set up your nonprofit organization in a way that will comply with state and federal requirements. We will focus on the legal hurdles of setting up your nonprofit entity so you can focus on your goal of helping others.
The legal requirements for nonprofit entities don't end upon formation. You will need to comply with periodic reporting requirements and adapt to any regulation changes that could affect your organization. A mistake can cost your organization its tax-exempt status. It is even possible for tax-exempt entities to overstep the limits on tax-free activity, creating the potential for unexpected tax liabilities. In short, the legal landscape for nonprofits is filled with very consequential decisions, all of which can affect your organization's ability to continue its mission.
We are ready to advise you and your nonprofit on an ongoing basis and ensure your organization complies with all Kansas laws and regulations.
