Tax Exempt Organizations


Our tax lawyers advise tax-exempt entities on qualification, formation and operational tax matters. We counsel tax-exempt status rulings from the IRS and state tax authorities, and advise tax-exempt entities on contribution, funding Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBIT) and lobbying issues. 

We are well versed in tax issues exclusive to public charities, private foundations, social welfare organizations and business leagues and advise clients on qualification, formation, organizational structure, governance and operational tax matters. The firm also represents tax-exempt organizations in audit and tax controversy matters.

Baker Botts lawyers advise universities and hospitals, as well as tax-exempt entities on their business ventures with for-profit entities. We also advise non-U.S. entities with tax-exempt operations in the U.S. and have created international structures for tax-exempt entities that operate exclusively outside the U.S.
