  • Special July 17 - Thursday with the Editor to focus on new Form 990

To the Point
My 15-year old son is passionate about civil rights for youth and is committed to fighting to reduce the voting age in our state to 16. He formed a nonprofit corporation and I am not sure that he should file for 501(c)(3) status.  He intends to meet with state legislators in an attempt to get a bill introduced. I am concerned that meeting with legislators might be considered lobbying and might jeopardize the group’s 501(c)(3) status.
