Nonprofit Legal Compliance: Common Myths, Misconceptions, and Mistakes (and How to Correct Them)

  1. Reporting Requirements (general lack of awareness)
  2. Board Responsibilities  (uninformed/inactive board, improper use of "proxies")
  3. Email Voting
  4. Conflicts of Interest
  5. Delegation of Authority (Board, officers, ED, employees)
  6. Fiscal agents v. sponsors
  7. Lobbying (failure to make 501(h) election)
  8. Unrelated business income
  9. "Tipping" – public charity support requirements
  10. Misclassifying employees (independent contractor v. volunteer, exempt v. non-exempt)


Stephanie A. Mattoon represents non-profit and for-profit organizations at all stages of their life cycle with respect to corporate formation, mergers and acquisitions, and corporate governance matters. She regularly assists new organizations in obtaining 501(c)(3) or other tax-exempt status and advises existing public charities regarding compliance with federal tax law, including private benefit issues, unrelated business income tax, lobbying and political activity restrictions, fiscal sponsorship arrangements, and public charity support determinations. She has extensive experience representing private foundations on compliance matters related to self-dealing, program-related investments, expenditure responsibility, scholarship programs, and non-lobbying advocacy.
