It is vitally important for a nonprofit organization to comply with legal requirements related to maintaining its tax-exempt status. Prevention is better than a cure when it comes to possible investigations, challenges or audits from the IRS. An NPO that manages bookkeeping properly and ensures compliance with state and federal rules and regulations will be well prepared in the event of an IRS audit.

When a Tax-Exempt Organization Is Subjected to IRS Audit

Nonetheless, IRS audits and tax controversies are a fact of life from time to time. Individuals and businesses as well as nonprofit entities need to prepare tax filings and maintain records as if an audit will happen at any time — even if this is a rare occurrence. Some nonprofit organizations never face an IRS audit.

If, however, your NPO has received notice of a pending IRS audit, our experienced attorneys are prepared to assist you, 

Our lawyers provide advice, counsel, and representation to many tax-exempt organizations in connection with IRS audits and tax controversies, in such areas as challenges to the tax-exempt status to the organization, unrelated business income tax, and allegations that the organization provided an "excess benefit" to an "insider."
