Tax-exempt organizations come in all shapes and sizes. A church faces distinctly different issues from a chamber of commerce, for example, and unique and creative approaches are required to meet each organization’s needs.
Husch Blackwell’s Nonprofit Organizations & Religious Institutions team is experienced in handling issues specific to tax-exempt organizations, as well as the individuals and entities that interact with them. More than 100 attorneys firmwide regularly counsel clients ranging from global entities with multimillion-dollar budgets to local 501(c)(3) organizations.
The tax-exempt organizations we represent include:
Our team guides clients on issues related to formation, compliance, private benefit or inurement, conflicts of interest, sanctions, penalties, loss of tax-exempt status, tax management, outsourcing, joint ventures, financing, real estate transactions, employment and labor issues, litigation and general commercial transactions. We also work with individuals and businesses on the use of private foundations, split interest trusts and other charitable giving techniques designed to maximize tax incentives.
Our team members are active in their communities and regularly serve as trustees and directors of nonprofit organizations. Multiple firm attorneys are members of the National Diocesan Attorneys Association. In addition to experience representing nonprofits, we understand the unique issues nonprofits encounter, including management, finance and funding of tax-exempt organizations.
