Obtaining federal tax exemption has become more difficult and complex in recent years. With our experience and expertise, we prepare all the necessary documentation to secure your ministries exempt status or group exemption.
ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION
Articles of Incorporation provide a strong legal shield for your ministry, while ensuring your limited legal liability. We carefully design your Articles to reflect your mission, while ensuring you meet all state and federal requirements.
We obtain your personal federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) that identifies your ministry and is needed for business and federal purposes. As an exempt organization, this number enables you to take tax deductible tithes and offerings.
Your bylaws are the rules of law adopted for regulation and governance of the internal affairs for your ministry. We personally design bylaws that carry the vision of your ministry, protect your ministry, and maintain the State requirements.
Your policies are the operational guidelines for your ministry and serve as a reference tool. We design essential policies to help establish and protect your board of directors and leadership team as they fulfill the mission of the ministry.
