Desk Reference Manual for Nonprofit & Social Service Organizations


In order to maintain their nonprofit status and continue to help others, all nonprofit organizations continuously face unique financial, legal, and tax concerns.

With that in mind, The Desk Reference Manual For Nonprofit and Social Service Organizations outlines the basic financial, accounting, tax compliance, organizational and legal issues regarding the ongoing operations of nonprofit and social service organizations and provides resources to address these concerns. Critical issues such as obtaining federal recognition of nonprofit status, charitable solicitation registration, and basic financial statements, including statement of activities, statement of financial position, cash flows and functional expenses, are addressed. A complete overview of nonprofit board responsibilities, financing requirements, wealth management issues and insurance matters are also discussed. In addition, taxation and payroll requirements for nonprofit organizations with or without employees are included, as well as an information directory of the various agencies involved in the nonprofit sector.
