Tax-exempt status comes with many strings attached.

As scrutiny of tax-exempt organizations by the federal government, state Attorneys General and your constituencies increase and nonprofit compliance issues become more complex, you need a tax team that is thoroughly familiar with the ever-changing tax laws, tax regulations and tax rulings specific to the nonprofit sector.

Raffa’s tax professionals provide associations, public charter schools, foundations, NGOs and public charities the tax education, advice and support they need to ensure they will remain exempt and able to continue their important work. With "exemption protection," Raffa helps nonprofits protect their greatest asset: their nonprofit status.

From your organization’s initial application for tax-exempt status to your annual federal and state filings, Raffa’s tax professionals embrace your vision, ensure compliance and provide guidance.
