Harvey Mechanic

I am an attorney and I volunteer time to answer general questions about U.S. Federal income tax issues of nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charities only. Those questions could be about establishing and maintaining legal requirements for such non-profit organizations in the United States, including Internal Revenue service filings and requirements. I will not be working on this free forum to answer questions about Nonprofit's possible unrelated or for-profit businesses or how to fill out forms. This forum is only for general questions about federal tax law, not as the law applies to your specific situation. If you make your question public then I tend to spend more time on answers to benefit the public. If you have other questions, please contact me at I will reply from my email. To search my previous answers you can do a Google search by "" without the quotes and then add your search terms before hitting enter.
