I don’t do this often, but I recently increased some of my fees.
My popular phone consultation fee is the same at $60/hour.
My fee preparing the IRS Form 1023-EZ application for 501(c)(3) status for small organizations has increased from $150 to $250.
But starting July 1, 2016 the IRS fee for Form 1023-EZ drops from $400 to $275, so overall your total fee will be less than before. Gotta like that.
Additionally, I used to charge separately for reviewing your Articles of Incorporation for compliance with the IRS 501(c)(3) rules. Now that will be included in the $250 fee.
And I will also include a letter explaining what your state filing requirements will be for your newly formed 501(c)(3) organization. I used to charge separately for that as well, but it’s now included.
So, your homeschool group can apply for 501(c)(3) status (or get reinstated if your tax exempt status was revoked because you failed to file the annual Form 990-Ns) for less money and get more services!
What’s not to like about that?
