Religious Exemptions from State Registration

Organizations that are religious in nature, can request and receive religious exemptions from state registration requirements in most states. Religious organizations typically only need to register annually in 15 states even if they are soliciting contributions nationwide and can get exemptions in all the other states. The religious exemptions are not automatic and require forms and documents to be filed with each of the states. States will make determinations based off of factors such as your Articles of Incorporation and determine if you meet the state requirements for a religious exemption. Labyrinth can help you file religious exemptions as well as your annual charity state registrations. Once your have received religious exemptions from states, you can legally solicit contributions from donors in all states from then on, but no additional filing or state registration fees are necessary.
