The financial expertise to support your mission

BerryDunn’s nonprofit tax team works exclusively with tax-exempt organizations throughout New England and beyond. We understand and embrace the unique challenges faced by nonprofits—and recognize the vital importance of putting the mission first. Our team has deep expertise in partnering with nonprofits to develop comprehensive, coordinated, and compliant tax strategies.


The BerryDunn nonprofit tax team offers a full range of tax consulting, compliance, and education services for exempt organizations like yours.

Tax consulting

Nonprofit tax has unique complexities and ever-changing regulations. Our team works with nonprofits of all sizes, every day, all year long. We help you navigate the nuances, positioning you to make the best decisions for your organization.

Unrelated Business Income (UBI) tax
We help you distinguish tax-exempt revenue from UBI, protecting your tax-exempt status and informing your revenue decisions.
Conflict of interest reviews
Our team works with you to identify and avoid potential conflicts between your organization and your board.
Multi-entity planning
We advise on the risks and benefits of a multi-entity corporate structure, and help you decide if it’s right for your organization.
501(r) consulting
We work with tax-exempt hospitals in a mock audit setting to help ensure compliance with 501(r) regulations.
Alternative investments
We help you understand the impact of foreign activities and investments, including foreign reporting requirements.
Audit representation
We stand by you in the event of an IRS or state audit, guiding you through the process each step of the way.

Tax compliance

We know that compliance for tax-exempt organizations goes beyond filing a Form 990. Our nonprofit tax experts know the ins and outs of staying compliant with issues unique to you, including unrelated business income and foreign investments. 

IRS Forms 990 and 990T
We don’t just “check the box” when it comes to filing your Form 990. We partner with you in using it as a strategic tool.
Unrelated Business Income (UBI) tax
We help you navigate the rules that distinguish tax-exempt revenue from UBI and help ensure that your reporting is accurate.
State and local tax returns
We know that UBI tax issues go beyond the federal level, and will prepare state and local tax filings when needed.
Foreign tax reporting
Our team understands the impact of alternative investments and will guide you through required reporting requirements.
Contract review
Our team will review royalty, affinity, and sponsorship contracts to help you comply with UBI rules.

Tax education

Our team goes beyond the tax and compliance work we do for your organization. We are here as your guides to help you, your management, and your board understand the details you need to know to make strategic financial decisions to enable your mission.

Management training
Our team is skilled at preparing clear and concise trainings for management and across the organization.
Board training
We educate boards on how to fulfill their fiduciary responsibility, and provide guidance on board governance.
