Re: [newtech-1] Non-Profit Where to register

Hi, Adnan

I have experience setting up a nonprofit. You actually can register with the NYS Division of Corporation as a nonprofit. But if you want to be recognized as a 501 (c)(3) or any other specific type of nonprofit, you would have to submit an application with the IRS. It takes within a year for them to process your application, pay the filing fee and then they will issue you a Determination Letter, recoginizing you as an approved nonprofit for Federal taxation purposes. There are also, State requirements to be recognized as a nonprofit for State tax benefits. Most nonprofits opt for the Determination Letter in order to get funding from outside sources ie. grants, etc. For more information, please go to

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else
