WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO GAIN TAX-EXEMPT STATUS FOR YOUR NON-PROFIT IN NH
Is my NH non-profit able to become federally tax-exempt?
Yes. You can apply for tax-exempt status with the IRS. You will need the IRS-issued Letter of Determination in order to receive other tax benefits.
What about other state tax requirements?
If a non-profit organization is considered tax-exempt with the IRS, then it is exempt from the New Hampshire Business Profits Tax. No specific filing will have to be made with the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration.
