Tax Exempt Associations

A business that does not have to pay Federal taxes is considered to be “tax exempt.” All tax-exempt businesses in the United States are also corporations set up as a nonprofit organization. But nonprofit organizations are not automatically tax-exempt. They must file a special application with the IRS, requesting to be exempt from paying Federal tax. Some states also require a separate filing in order to be tax-exempt from paying state taxes.
