Congratulations on securing your State License from the Nevada Secretary of State. So, what now? Can you legally conduct business?

Classifying as a nonprofit organization has always been a popular choice for Nevada business owners when deciding on the classification of their new business entity. Not all businesses can be classified as a nonprofit or 501(c)(3), however. To qualify for 501(c)(3) status, an entity must be formed for charitable, educational, literary, religious, or scientific purposes. A 501(c)(3), as many people know, is eligible for federal and state tax exemptions - and thus drives the popularity of the classification. In this blog, we will go over things to keep in mind if you're thinking of forming a nonprofit organization.

Nevada has been a popular destination to establish businesses and the popularity is recognized by foreign business owners as well. This is largely due to the tax benefits and protection that many Nevada entities currently have. It's no secret that many businesses form shell companies here to protect sensitive information. In comparison to other states, Nevada has little power under the current statute to audit or investigate companies that have incorporated here, unless asked by law enforcement.
