They have experience in a wide range of professional arenas from the nonprofit and academic communities to private industry and are inspired by a shared vision to help nonprofits and philanthropy strengthen the capacity to achieve breakthrough results.
They are responsible for administering two of California’s major tax programs for Personal Income Tax and the Corporation Tax. California Non Profit Organization also have responsibility for administering other nontax programs and delinquent debt collection functions, including delinquent vehicle registration debt collections on behalf of the Department of Motor Vehicles and court, ordered debt. Nonprofit organizations may gain recognition of federal tax exemption under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In California, the corresponding provision for state tax exemption is Section 23701d of the Revenue and Taxation Code. Section 23701d will be very similar to Section 501(c) (3) and states.
California Non Profit Organization, organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purposes, or to foster national or international amateur sports competition but only if no part of its activities involved the provision of athletic facilities or equipment, or for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals, no part of the net earnings of which inures to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual, no substantial part of the activities of which is carrying on propaganda or otherwise attempting to influence legislation, and which does not participate in, or intervene in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office.
The California State Senate passed SB 323, or the Youth Equality Act, a bill that will amend Section 23701d in order to reject or cancel state tax exemption for youth organizations that discriminate. The bill, aimed at the California Non Profit Organization, was designed to bring nonprofit youth groups in line with California’s existing non-discrimination laws by charge state sales, use, and corporate taxes on those organizations with biased practices. Specifically, SB 323 proposes the addition of the following language to the code. California Non Profit Organization an organization organized and operated completely as a public charity youth organization that discriminates on the basis of gender identity, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, or religious affiliation shall not be exempt from taxes imposed by the part.
Censor of the measure are worried about its constitutionality, citing free speech issues and U.S. Supreme Court cases that recognize a private organization’s right to make membership decisions. Although the California Non Profit Organization recently approved new guidelines allowing homosexual-identifying youths to become members, its policy still prohibits openly homosexual adults from serving as leaders. Another criticism of the bill is the language leaves open the meaning of gender identity. An open definition of gender identity could have unintended consequences on nonprofit schools and institutions that have traditionally been all-boys or all-girls.
