The nonprofit sector is a major contributor to state economies with more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations registered in the U.S.  However, state tax law does not always offer the same exemption status awarded by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  Many state taxes (sales, withholding, &, etc.) still apply to the activities and functions to carry on the day-to-day operations of a nonprofit.  Learn more about how our Specialty Tax practice can help you.
