Overview

Tax-exempt employers face tough decisions, nearly all of which are subject to tax implications and scrutiny from outside entities. Issues frequently implicate not only special legal considerations but also an organization’s mission, mandate or values, and in these situations, a “softer” touch can be as important as technical know-how in effecting practical, fair and lawful resolutions. At Faegre Drinker, we understand the culture and values of tax-exempt organizations and provide you with critical legal services for your benefits plans. We understand the fundamentals and nuances of the laws that impact tax-exempt organizations, and we are experienced in structuring retirement, health and welfare, and executive compensation plans based on your specific needs. In addition to the development and implementation of plans, we counsel on issues arising from “church plan status” and on meeting fiduciary duties.
