JRM Financial Associates Non-Profit Organizations

Secure and Maintain Non-Profit StatusÂ…

JRM Financial Associates offers Non Profit Accounting Services NJ that can help you setup and maintain your non-profit organization's tax-exempt status. We can do this by handling all of the IRS reporting for you.

Annually, the IRS requires most tax-exempt organizations to submit the Form 990 and its relations, which includes the following items.
  1. Income Statement (requires very specific revenue and expense categories such as donations, salaries, postage, rent...)
  1. Balance Sheet (contains specific categories such as cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable...)
  1. Functional Expense Statement (contains all of the expenses allocated to program services, fundraising, or operations)
  1. Individual Program Expense Statement (this contains all of the expenses for each program or service such as seminar programs or educational mailings)
  1. Revenue Support Schedules (this details and categorizes all of the organization's sources of income such as charitable donations, membership fees, investment income.

Using these very specific revenue and expense classifications, the IRS determines whether your organization will keep its tax-exempt status.  This is why accounting firms in NJ stress that it is critical that you build your accounting system to accommodate these revenue and expense categories.

Here is what JRM Financial Associates can do for you...

  • Assemble your financial statements
