How can I start a non-profit dance company?


Answer by  patti (29325)

First you need a detailed business plan. 92% of failed businesses have no business plan. Once you get up and running, including a Board of Directors, you must file Form 990 with the IRS. You must include lots of info about the organization, including publications, Board, etc. Details are at the IRS website.
