Establishing a not-for-profit requires more than simply filing a few forms, which can become both frustrating and time consuming by themselves.  There are many legal questions concerning the startup process.  Let McAvoy & Murphy Law Firm take the burden of dealing with the IRS off your shoulders so you can concentrate on your company’s mission and purpose.  McAvoy & Murphy Law Firm offers a one-time flat fee for a complete nonprofit startup package (this fee does not include filing fees). 


The following services are available as part of our Nonprofit Complete Startup Package:

                                * Feasibility assessment of tax exempt purpose(s)

                                * Preparing and filing Articles of Incorporation

The Complete Package includes all the legal steps required to create the nonprofit and acquire tax exempt status.  Documents will only be filed with the IRS after you have a chance to review and approve of their contents.  If your nonprofit qualifies for the new 1023-EZ, the flat fee would typically be reduced depending on the complexity of the corporate structure.
