Not every nonprofit organization receives grants, but those that do know how difficult it can be to keep track of these funds. Restricted funds can only be spent on specific programs or projects, so it’s crucial to know exactly where those funds are going. It’s also important to know how much of each type of funding you have available. While some organizations choose to invest in accounting software specifically designed for nonprofits, many not-for-profit organizations prefer using QuickBooks Online for its ability to integrate with third-party applications for payroll processing, bill payments, sales platforms and more.

The Wayfair Ruling: What this Sales Tax Case Means for Nonprofits

Article | February 18, 2020

A landmark ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018 dramatically expanded the ability of states to impose sales tax collection obligations on out-of-state organizations that sell goods and services within their boundaries. Since then, state legislatures and municipalities have scrambled to pass laws targeting organizations that lack a physical presence in their jurisdictions. Some of these laws could ensnare nonprofits that make taxable sales to those states — even if similar sales aren’t taxable in their home states.
