Most state governments require nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations to file one or more registrations in the state, including:
Required by most states prior to an organization beginning fundraising in the state. If you fundraise in more than one state you may need to register in more than one state.
States that have an income and/or franchise tax often require organizations to apply for exemption. Federal 501(c)(3) status only exempts your organization from paying federal income tax.
State rules also vary widely on when a nonprofit group must pay sales tax on items that you purchase, and collect sales tax on items that you sell. PBUSA helps its members obtain exemption from state sales tax when its available.
