|Comment||I want to thank Harvey Mechanic, his answer gave me more information that I thought I would get for free. He included both the charity and the private foundation to show me the difference. Also showed me the difference between Foundations...Private Operating, Non-Operating, Exempt...There is so much to know before starting a foundation where I have only myself as a director. I'm hiring Harvey Mechanic to start my foundation and I know I'm in the best hands that will also assist me in the future with any questions, tax information, etc. I've asked Harvey Mechanic questions in the past and now I'm ready to start my foundation. No other attorney will answer so many questions for free. Thanks Harvey your the best choice for my foundation...|
I am an attorney and I volunteer time to answer general questions about U.S. Federal income tax issues of nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charities only. Those questions could be about establishing and maintaining legal requirements for such non-profit organizations in the United States, including Internal Revenue service filings and requirements. I will not be working on this free forum to answer questions about Nonprofit's possible unrelated or for-profit businesses or how to fill out forms. This forum is only for general questions about federal tax law, not as the law applies to your specific situation. If you do not make your question public then I will not be spending much of my donated time on answers that would not benefit the public. If you have other questions, please contact me at Harvey108@hotmail.com I will reply from my email. In any case, do not reveal confidential information to me until after I have contracted with you to provide personal legal services. My responses on this forum are intended to be general statements of law, should not be relied upon as legal advice, and do not create an attorney/client relationship. For me to consider your individual situation and how the law applies, I would need to gather extensive information about the situation. To search my previous answers you can do a Google search by "site:allexperts.com/q/nonprofit" without the quotes and then add your search terms before hitting enter.
I have been practicing law and especially the law of nonprofit organizations since 1990 when I was admitted to the New York Bar and I have maintained my status with the Bar since that time.
