State Charitable Solicitation Registration Requirements CLE/CPE Rebroadcast
*** Please note: This event is a rebroadcast of the LIVE event which was originally run on March 7, 2012. A speaker will return for a live audience question and answer session.***
Although your organization may have incorporated as a nonprofit corporation and obtained tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service and is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions, many states require an additional registration to solicit contributions from their residents. Complying with the annual registration requirements of 40 different states can bring both challenges and opportunities for organizations. However, failure to register or file the necessary annual financial reports prior to soliciting contributions may subject the organization and its leaders to penalties and negative publicity. This session outlines the general requirements along with practical steps to follow to ensure compliance.
