Exempt Organization

Little Pedersen Fankhauser assists tax-exempt public and private foundations, charities and educational institutions addressing particularized tax issues arising from their tax-exempt status and from their normal operations.

Our services include:

  • obtaining initial recognition of tax-exempt status
  • retaining tax-exempt and public charity status
  • public and private support issues
  • unrelated business income tax planning
  • tax return filing issues
  • audit and appellate controversies with the Internal Revenue Service

In addition, we routinely deal with employment tax issues for exempt organizations and state universities – ranging from ordinary withholding questions to the requirements for reporting payments to non-resident aliens.

We also have significant experience in the creation, qualification, and operation of tax-exempt entities to serve as affiliates of or to provide support for existing charitable and educational organizations.

Representative Matters

We represent a number of state university systems, individuals and public and private exempt organizations with respect to tax status and taxation issues.
