SOS 1040 Plus, LLC

We see beyond the numbers!



Do you have a passion or want to help your community? Our office will help you obtain your non-profit status with the state and the 
federal government. We will complete your state articles of incorporation, federal 1023 application, and your by-laws. 

Helpful Hints:

  • You must be registered with your secretary of state as a non-profit incorporation in order to use the streamlined 1023EZ application. Registering as an LLC will require you to complete the longer form 1023.
  • The 1023 application user fee is tiered and ranges from $275 to $850 depending on multiple factors. Click here to visit the IRS for more details. 
  • You can lose your exemption status if you fail to file at a 990 for 3 consecutive tax years. Once your status is revoked, you must apply for reinstatement after completing all missing 990s.
