The attached article was written by John E. McEnroe, Jr. and was such a great summary of steps that every Non-Profit should follow, we thought we’d give John credit here and share the article on our website. We found the article when searching for information on the little-mentioned topic of Non-Profit Arizona Registration with the Arizona Secretary of State.
We have observed that many of our non-profit charitable clients are not aware of the registration requirement with the AZ Secretary of State before accepting any charitable donations. Many Non-Profits feel that receiving the IRS determination letter for a 501(c)(3), incorporating through the AZ Corporate Commission, and registering with the AZ Department of Revenue satisfies all setup requirements. Apparently, not so. This doesn’t seem to be widely enforced by the Secretary. An annual renewal is also required every September. Although free, if filed late, there is a $25 fee.
