One of the questions we get from time to time relates to how to form a nonprofit corporation in Georgia. In this short video, attorney Joel Beck discusses basics considerations for forming a nonprofit, including some issues to address in the articles of incorporation as well as the recommendation to consult with a CPA/tax advisor experienced with nonprofit filings, among other things.
It is important, when starting a new nonprofit to ensure that the Bylaws of the Corporation are tailored to your organization and how you wish to operate. In addition, if y ou will be seeking tax-exempt status with the IRS under an exemption in Section 501(c)(3), then the Bylaws and the Articles of Incorporation should contain certain provisions to assist in that tax determination filing. Failing to do this correctly on the front-end can mean rejected applications and additional work later.
