No. Incorporating in the state in which the Nonprofit organization will be located qualifies as a Nonprofit Corporation. However, the benefits of filing for tax exempt status are:
1. The organization is exempt from having to pay federal taxes on income it receives.
2. Donors (monetary contributors) are able to take a charitable deduction for their donations on their personal tax returns.
3. The 501(c)(3) Federal Tax Exempt Status organization can apply for state tax exemption and real property tax exemption for real property that the organization owns.
4. The 501(c)(3) Federal Tax Exempt Status organization can apply for GRANTS (Free Money) to fund their programs.
For example, suppose you wanted to operate a community development center, which provides tutoring for school-aged children, GED preparation, and computer training. Well, you definitely cannot rely on donations from the public at large, and therefore need an alternative source of funding. That alternative source of funding is grants.
There is definitely a sustainable Network of Effective Funders across the United States where corporations and foundations leverage public and private funds to disburse GRANTS TO COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS that provide direct services to children, youth, and their families.
