Starting a Nonprofit Organization in New York

Starting a Nonprofit Organization in New York – New York Small Business Law
Nonprofits are businesses that made it their mission to give away all of their profits to a particular cause, rather than enrich the owners of the business.

Starting a nonprofit organization is in many ways like starting any other small business in New York. But there are additional steps required in order to get the desired status of “tax exempt” from the IRS,which means that the organization does not have to pay taxes on any of its income.

Here are some good links to get you started:

The Things you Gotta do to Start a Nonprofit Organization, by the Nonprofit Coordinating Commitee of NewYork;

Exemption Requirements by the IRS; and

A step by step Application Process by the IRS.
