capitalizing on opportunities

Lerch Early actively represents non-profit organizations.  In view of the many Internal Revenue Service rules governing non-profit organizations, these businesses face special legal challenges in conducting their business operations. 

Our representation includes establishing or restructuring the organization, obtaining IRS recognition of the tax-exempt status, and advising as to how to preserve that status.  We advise management on strategies limiting the unrelated business income tax liability and ensuring that organizations qualify as publicly supported charities that are exempt from the restrictive Private Foundation rules.  We have assisted clients in structuring transactions and joint ventures with for-profit organizations without compromising their tax-exempt status.
