Not-For-Profit Accounting Services
We provide accounting services for Not-For-Profit organizations.
Many accounting firms dabble in not-for-profit accounting services. They may consider it an hour filler or a solution to off season staffing problems. At Squire, Lemkin + Company, in many ways we consider ourselves a not-for-profit accounting firm and helping not-for-profit organizations with their accounting needs is what we do best. It’s what we do most. And it’s what we truly enjoy. Our dedication to serving charitable organizations helps us understand their unique accounting, financial and compliance requirements.
Taxes are an important, though often overlooked area for not-for-profits. While many not-for-profits are exempt from federal income tax, there are other kinds of taxes which still apply to their operations. We help leading not-for-profits understand and comply with relevant local, state, and federal tax laws.
First and foremost, our not-for-profit service helps leading greater Washington D.C. and Baltimore area organizations comply with all the state and federal tax and regulatory requirements that come along with their tax-exempt status. But we don’t stop there. We also help clients comply with all relevant taxing requirements while minimizing tax liabilities whenever possible.
