Tax Exempt Organizations

Tax Exempt Organizations

The Attorneys at Weiler & Rees are often called upon to help tax exempt organizations achieve their charitable and other tax exempt objectives. The attorneys have used their experience to help clients in matters related to the formation of public charities and private foundations and they have also advised clients on compliance issues in the areas of unrelated business income, joint ventures and charitable gifts. The attorneys at Weiler & Rees serve as counsel to public charities and private foundations, both large and small.

In recent years – and with the arrival of L3Cs and B corporations in Louisiana – the firm’s practice in this area has grown. Clients, as well as CPAs and other attorneys, call on Weiler & Rees to advise on state law governance, pros and cons of forming an L3C or B corporation, making a program related investment, and other tax related compliance issues.
