ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION
One of the organizational documents required by the IRS of any nonprofit corporation is the Articles of Incorporation. This document will serve to tell the IRS who is governing the organization (members or board of directors) along with the names and addresses of each board member, name of the organizer of the corporation, name and address of Registered Agent and Registered Office, and the purpose of the organization. It will also include certain legal limitations and how the organization will dissolve, should it be necessary. The Articles of Incorporation document affirms who your organization is and how it will address the legal concerns of the state and the IRS.
