Our nonprofit tax attorneys have a strong foundation in tax law, such as unrelated business taxable income, tax-exempt status and deductibility of charitable contributions, which most directly affect the continued existence and successful operation of the Firm’s nonprofit clients. We assist clients in obtaining and maintaining their tax-exempt status and also provide guidance and direction to assist clients in identifying and capitalizing on opportunities for growth and expansion of their charitable activities, while avoiding pitfalls such as unrelated business taxable income. Additionally, our attorneys have strong expertise in the areas of direct and deferred giving, including the establishment and ongoing maintenance of charitable remainder unitrusts, anuity trusts, pooled income funds, gift annuity programs, endowments, and donor advised funds.
