According to U.S. federal law, there are 29 types of nonprofit organizations
Tax section 501(c)(3) of Title 26 of the U.S. Code claims an exemption for corporations, trusts or unincorporated associations established for nonprofit purposes. IRS Form 1023 is the Application for Recognition of Exemption. You may be eligible to e-file this form if your organization is qualified as religious, scientific, educational, charitable, etc.
If you need to find out whether your firm has a right to apply for an exemption, it’s more advisable for you to complete IRS Form 1023-EZ (The Eligibility Worksheet) first. After approval, the IRS provides a letter with a written assurance of the organization’s tax-exempt status. This qualifies the entity to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions. Every entity, that is qualified for exemption may be also classified as a “public charity” or as a “private foundation”. Such organizations are not allowed to perform any activities for or against political candidates.
