Question of the Week

Will founder lose control if he forms a 501(c)(3)?
The founder of a company is hard-pressed to determine what type of company he actually wants to have. He does not want to claim charitable nonprofit status and file the appropriate 501(c)(3) paperwork because he fears that when voting in board members he will be voted "out" and the company will be taken away from him. If he does not do the 501(c)(3), will it be considered a for-profit company and have to pay taxes? The company has been formed to raise funds for a particular disabling disease.
