Not-for-profit organizations, ranging from professional and trade associations 501(c)6 to charitable organizations 501(c)3, arts and educational organizations and foundations, are facing some of the most dramatic changes in IRS tax reporting requirements on Form 990 – Return for Organizations Exempt From Income Tax. Unlike traditional accounting for businesses, accounting for not for profit entities is highly specialized and requires a strong knowledge of non profit reporting, exemptions, and budgeting, which is why it's so important to find an expert who understands the intricacies of not for profit accounting. Porte Brown has been assisting non profit organizations with their audit and accounting needs for decades and has built a reputation as the go-to non profit accounting firm for Chicago and the surrounding communities.

Porte Brown provides our clients interactive checklists, mailing reminders, and opportunities for webinars to make sure that our 120+ not-for-profit clients have all policies and standards in place to comply with the new IRS governance and transparency regulations.Man helping baby bird
