One of the reasons I have formed over 2,600 Arizona companies since 2001 is my information “how to” articles on my website. I am happy to announce that I just revised my popular article called “How to Form an Arizona Nonprofit Corporation.” I updated the article to include the current fees to file an IRS Form 1023 and to reflect changes in Arizona nonprofit corporation law and federal tax-exempt organization laws. I added new text that explains why I think it is a big, big mistake for people to form do-it-yourself nonprofit corporations. There is much more to forming a nonprofit corporation than just submitting the three page fill in the blanks form Articles of Incorporation found on the Arizona Corporation Commission’s website.
I also just published a new article called “Arizona Nonprofit Corporation Formation Service,” which explains in detail the 24 services I perform and the 16 documents I prepare when I am hired to form an Arizona nonprofit corporation for $1,319. That is $62/lawyer prepared document. This guaranteed fixed fee includes the $75 Arizona Corporation Commission expedited filing fee, publication cost of $175, $72 for a corporate minute book with corporate seal, and the postage to mail the minute book to the corporation.
