Internal Revenue Service Audits

Experiencing an IRS audit as a nonprofit can be an overwhelming and nerve-wracking process, marked by a thorough examination of your financial records, tax filings, and compliance with federal regulations. From the initial notification, the organization must meticulously gather and present a vast array of documents, including financial statements, donor records, and proof of expenditures, all while ensuring ongoing operations are not disrupted.

The scrutiny of the audit can reveal any inconsistencies or errors, potentially leading to significant penalties or the loss of tax-exempt status. The process often involves detailed questioning and can extend for months, creating a prolonged period of uncertainty and stress for staff and board members. Throughout this ordeal, maintaining transparency, accuracy, and compliance is crucial, and having knowledgeable legal and financial advisors becomes indispensable in navigating the complexities, defending the organization’s practices, and mitigating any potential adverse outcomes.

Attorney General Investigations

Experiencing ab Attorney General investigation of a charity can be a highly stressful and consuming ordeal. From the moment the investigation commences, your organization is subjected to intense scrutiny, requiring meticulous review of financial records, governance policies, and operational procedures.

The process often involves responding to detailed inquiries, producing extensive documentation, and possibly facing interviews with key staff and board members. The stakes are high, as findings can lead to significant legal and financial repercussions, including fines, penalties, or even revocation of tax-exempt status. Throughout this period, the charity’s leadership must balance the demands of the investigation with maintaining daily operations and donor confidence, all under the watchful eye of a powerful regulatory authority. FPLG attorneys have the legal expertise required to help navigate the complexities and protect the organization’s mission and reputation.
