Join Community Law Center for a short training on the ins and outs of annual filings for small Maryland nonprofit organizations. An attorney will provide information about which annual filings are required for which types of small nonprofits, and offer an overview of the following documents:

  • Personal Property Return (Maryland Form 1);
  • 990-N (IRS e-postcard);
  • Charitable Solicitations Registration or Exempt Organization Fund-Raising Notice Form (and Annual Update); and
  • Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certificate Application.

At the conclusion of the training, if you have all of the necessary information, you may stay to complete your forms and our attorneys will be available to meet with nonprofits one-on-one as needed to discuss these forms.

If you wish to complete your forms on the day of the event, you must bring ALL of the requested documentation (see list below). Brief legal consultations will be limited to the forms addressed in the training. Nonprofits with additional legal questions will be asked to submit a completed Application for Legal Services to request legal representation through our Pro Bono Program (
