IRS Form 1023 Application Review


review-approvedIRS Form 1023 Application Review. Preparing your form 1023 application yourself will give you the satisfaction of DIY, and of course it will prepare you for the hard road ahead as you actually learn inside and out of a nonprofit organization. However, after reviewing countless form 1023 application, mistakes on grand scale seems to be epidemic. Many application are missing vital information, unchecked boxes, unanswered questions and almost 99 out 100 suffers from budgeting mistakes. These shortcoming will guarantee questioning or denial from the IRS and will prolong the process by up to two years.

If you want to save yourself the headache and thousands of dollars in attorney fees for answering complicated IRS questions, I offer nonprofit application review which covers every single document including Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, Conflict of Interest, Attachments, Budgeting, and of course your Form 1023. I charge a flat fee of $225 per application review and this amount is utterly ridiculous compared to an attorney fee of a few thousand dollars for the same service, but I continue to offer it for those who truly need it and don’t have the funds to hire an attorney.

If you’d like me to review your application and supporting documents to make sure everything is correct, first make sure that you have read this entire website page by page and you have made every possible effort to follow the instructions. Once you are happy with the result, archive all your documents into a single zip file (Your organizing documents, Completed form 1023, supporting materials…) and email the archive to me at chris [dash] sorbi [at] hotmail [dot] com. If you don’t know how to make a zip file, please visit this page.

Make sure that your documents follow the sample layout that I have provided here. If not, reformat your documents before sending them. There are three documents in the zip file which should cover all versions of Microsoft Word and Open Office. Choose the appropriate version and modify it to your needs.
