You should be able to complete your questionnaires in a few hours (maybe an afternoon if you struggle with English). The Corporation Questionnaire will not normally take more than about 45 minutes. (Add another 30 minutes to read our introductory material.) The 501c3 Questionnaire plus Attachments and Financials will normally take a long afternoon. Count on another hour or so if your organization is a church or school. Add more time if your nonprofit is very complex. You have two months to send us back your completed questionnaires. If you wish, you may extend this period for each questionnaire by paying $100 per month (extension fee).
Six Months Total Time
If you have not completed both sets of questionnaires, Corporation and 501c3, made any payments due, and sent off your application to the IRS by the end of six months from when you started our process, we remove you from our database, and you have lost your investment. We may (at our option) reinstate you for a $600 fee plus any extension fees. (Extension fees for unpaid payments are the same as for questionnaires.)
Please note that our refund policy is not set up for people who change their minds after they get started. “Be sure you’re right, then go ahead.” —Davy Crockett
