10 Questions You Need to Ask

—before choosing who will do your incorporation
and 501(c)(3) application for the IRS

You’ve never done this before, right?  It’s your first time, and you feel a bit overwhelmed.  It’s OK.  It’s not your fault.  Almost all our clients have been right where you are, and today they are moving ahead with their nonprofit organizations.  They did it with our help, and you can do it, too.

We believe we are the best place for you to go for incorporation and 501c3 tax-exempt status.  The main thing is that you should make sure all these questions are answered to your satisfaction before you make your decision.  

  1. Will you be able easily to talk with our office directly? Will our team return phone calls?  Is customer service a top priority?

Yes, absolutely! Since 1981, we have been serving clients like yourself to incorporate and secure 501c3 tax-exempt status with the IRS.

We put customer service as THE top priority, and we always have.  That’s why we get so many Rave Reviews (see 8. below.)

We have a great team to help you! Personal service is everything to us! And if you ask a question that is too tough for our team to answer (rare), then Harvard lawyer David G Marmon is right there backing them up.  We answer calls and get back to you right away. This is not just a business for us.  It is a very important service helping you to Change the World.

  1. How much experience does our 501c3 service have?

Since 1981, we have helped more than 3,000+ (the number continues to grow) organizations get their tax-exempt status in all 50 states and around the world.  We are like a midwife, providing everything you need.  Wouldn’t you trust a midwife who had helped deliver nearly 3,000+ babies?  We would.  That’s real experience.

  1. Is there any guarantee on how fast our work will be done for you?

We e-mail our corporate documents to you within 5 business days of when we receive your completed Corporation Questionnaire, or we pay you $200.  Yes, that’s right! We will pay YOU $200 if we miss our 5-business day guarantee! We do everything by e-mail, so the documents arrive within minutes.

Within 5-business days of receiving your completed 501c3 Questionnaire(s), your projected financials, and a copy of your filed Articles of Incorporation and signed Adoption of Bylaws document, we will go to the IRS website and enter all the information you have provided us. Then, we give you precise instructions to go to the IRS website, sign the application we have prepared for you, and pay the $600 IRS User Fee.

  1. How easy and convenient will it be for you?

One of the many nice things about our service is that you do it all at your computer, and all by questionnaires (in most cases, two questionnaires, one for your corporation and one for your 501c3 application and projected financials).  You do it at your own pace, in your own way and at your own convenience.  Never leave the comfort of your home.  Since you type in the information yourself, your documents will have no typographical errors (unless, of course, they are yours!).  We are always here to help you if you have any questions as you are filling out the questionnaires and projected financials for the IRS.

  1. Will you get just the bare bones Articles and 501(c)(3)?

There’s more to all this than just incorporating and getting the 501(c)(3) Determination Letter.  We believe you want to do everything right, dot every “i” and cross every “t.”  To do things right, you need six legal documents (one more if you’re a school).  Isn’t your nonprofit important enough to do things right?  No bare bones, here.  We give you everything you need to do it 100% right.

  1. Will an attorney be overseeing the drafting of the legal documents?

Yes, those six documents mentioned above will be overseen by our Harvard-trained lawyer.  Even though he will not give legal advice, you can be assured that the documents, honed and polished over 39+ years, will be just exactly what you need.  Would you trust anyone but a lawyer to oversee your legal documents? (If you come to us already incorporated, there are still very important legal documents you will need.)

  1. Will you be under someone’s else “umbrella”?

No, absolutely not! Going through our process and forever afterwards, you are completely independent.  You are not under our “umbrella” or tied to us in any way.  And, there are no ongoing additional costs.

  1. Are there “Rave Reviews” from previous clients?

We have tons of “Rave Reviews.”  Go to https://501c3go.com/about-us/rave-reviews/.  And here’s another link for current ongoing praise comments: https://501c3go.com/about-us/current-client-rave-reviews/ PLUS, once you are a client of ours, you can contact others in our family (https://501c3go.com/search-family-clients/) to share ideas, contacts, and resources.

9. What about AFTER you get your 501(c)(3) status?

For good corporate health, your nonprofit corporation needs a check-up from time to time. If you don’t do everything you should, you may run into serious consequences. You will be able to use our Corporate Check-up program to make sure your nonprofit stays in top physical shape. Stay healthy!

  1. What other service is there after the 501(c)(3) is obtained?

Here’s some icing for your cake:

Once you receive your golden letter from the IRS, our service is completed. But you’re still in our family, and you can still contact us as you travel down the road with your nonprofit.

We get calls from clients of years ago, and we have answered many hundreds of questions from these past clients over the years. If we don’t have the answer, we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction.
