What Differentiates a Nonprofit Corporation from a For-Profit Business?

Nonprofit corporations are organizations dedicated to serving the public good in a variety of capacities, including education, charity work, religious service, and other public services.

Rather than make a profit, nonprofit corporations focus on providing their chosen services to the community. Because of this emphasis on public service, nonprofits are exempt from paying federal and state taxes on any income made from earnings, unlike for-profit entities. You may also hear nonprofit corporations referred to as 501(c)(3) corporations because this is the most common tax exemption offered to nonprofits by the Internal Revenue Service under IRS Code Section 501(c)(3).

Fees outlined below do not include filing, recording, or courier service charges.
