Tax Exemption For Vermont Non-Profits
OBTAINING TAX EXEMPTIONS FOR YOUR VT NON-PROFIT
Can my non-profit be exempt from VT Corporate Income taxes?
If your Vermont non-profit decides to seek tax exempt status, first apply to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service by completing form 1023 and submitting it with the required attachments. The review process will take several months. If you receive a positive Letter of Determination from the IRS, your VT non-profit will be automatically exempt from Vermont Corporate Income taxes.
