Choice of entity for charitable and nonprofit organizations is a sophisticated set of tax, operational, regulatory and mission-related considerations and tradeoffs. The choice impacts not only how an entity will be treated for federal income tax and state law purposes, but also impact how the organization goes about its mission and serving its charitable purpose. The choice has become more difficult recently because of extended delays in obtaining tax exempt status from the IRS, leading many charities seeking alternatives to forming traditional entities.
