"Starting and Managing a Nonprofit Organization: A Legal Guide is now in its sixth edition (2013). John Wiley & Sons has published all of the editions of this book -- a new edition every four years. One of the major contributors to law changes in this area is enactment of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act, which was signed into law at the close of 2015. The PATH Act brought many new laws and law changes to the realm of nonprofit law. Nonprofits must comply with stringent federal and state laws due to their special tax-exempt status; the government's ultimate threat is revocation of a nonprofit's tax-exempt status, which usually means the nonprofit's demise. Written in plain English, not "legalese," Starting and Managing a Nonprofit Organization: A Legal Guide, provides essential guidance for those interested in starting nonprofits, as well as valuable advice for leaders of established organizations"-- Provided by publisher.
