Tax-Exempt Organizations

Gordon Law has proven itself to be a firm that’s capable of fulfilling a wide range of tax law needs that tax-exempt organizations face. Organizations that utilize our legal services and consultation offerings include hospitals, schools, outreach centers, trade associations, churches, and corporate/family organizations. Since each client gets treated in a dedicated manner, we’re able to apply our experience, knowledge, and vast amount of resources to just about any client that reaches out to us.

Advice & Support

Tax-exempt organizations aren’t regulated by the same laws as for-profit corporations, but the importance of staying compliant doesn’t change. This is why we take the task upon ourselves to guide our clients through every aspect of the legal system governing tax-exempt organizations. While there are many areas to cover, this generally includes:

  • Online Regulations
  • Employment Contracts
  • Trademark Registration
  • Severance Arrangements
  • Licensing & Royalty Agreements
  • Discrimination Issues/Prevention
  • Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit Compliance/Attainment
  • Low Income Housing Tax Credit Compliance/Attainment


It’s important for our clients to remain compliant with the laws set on local, state, and federal levels that affect tax-exempt organizations. Here at Gordon Law, we assess the nonprofit’s needs in order to develop a custom structure to ensure that daily compliance is something that’s being upheld. In order to do so, we advise our clients to implement certain standards and procedures that will help them have the highest level of compliance possible. Some of the services that we provide that are directly related to compliance include, but are not limited to:

  • Annual Reporting
  • Excise Tax Prevention
  • Excess Benefits Transactions Prevention
  • Substantiation and Disclosure of Charitable Contributions

Tax-Exempt Status Retention

Maintaining tax-exempt status is critical for nonprofits, but it can be taken away with the stroke of a pen. Each client is looked after to ensure that they are not putting themselves at risk of losing their tax-exempt status. Each one of the team members at Gordon Law that works with tax-exempt organizations has experience in maintaining this status for many nonprofits.
