Not-for-Profit Compensation Analysis

Protect Yourself and Your Organization

Foundations and other not-for-profits must be ready to prove to the IRS that they are not overpaying their employees. Should the government arrive with questions concerning your organization’s salaries, a documented process for determining compensation reasonability can make it more difficult for them, or anyone, else to challenge it.

Conducting a compensation study by yourself that will stand up to IRS scrutiny can be challenging and time-consuming. We can help you keep the focus on your core activities and gain peace of mind from disruption, penalties, or loss of reputation if the IRS questions your organization’s compensation levels.
