Many not-for-profits use fundraising methods that cross state boundaries. If yours is one of them, it may need to register in multiple jurisdictions. But keep in mind that registration requirements vary, sometimes dramatically, from state to state. For example, some states exempt certain nonprofits from registering and others require them to register but drop annual filing obligations. Compliance can be critical. If your organization fails to register where it solicits funds, it may face civil and criminal penalties and you could lose your tax-exempt status. Contact us for more information.
