Technically, anyone can complete Form 1023. From a practical standpoint, it is usually advisable to enlist the help of a professional who specializes in the process, such as The Foundation Group. While the IRS rejects slightly less than 10% of applications filed, nearly half are abandoned by the filer...usually out of frustration or inability to answer tough, IRS follow-up questions. Out of approximately 80,000 applications filed annually, only half make it through the process.
When Foundation Group launched in 1995, we were the first specialty firm in America dedicated exclusively to starting nonprofits and helping them to stay compliant with state and federal regulations.
