Nonprofit Quick Tip: State Filings in Oklahoma and Texas

June 10, 2024 Podcast
EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource

Welcome to EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. This is the 12th in a series of “Quick Tip” episodes focusing on the details of state registration of nonprofit corporations. In previous episodes, we addressed filing in Delaware and California, which are the most frequently used by our clients, most of whom have a connection with California. Other episodes have focused on the state filings in Nevada and Arizona, Washington State and Oregon, Alaska and Hawaii, New York and New Jersey, Massachusetts and Connecticut, Maine and Vermont, Rhode Island and New Hampshire, Florida and Louisiana, North Carolina and South Carolina, and most recently Kentucky and Tennessee.

Today, with Joe Hilliard's help, we examine the basic state filing requirements for nonprofit corporations operating in Oklahoma and Texas. In future episodes, we'll work our way through the rest of the states.

You can find all the prior episodes on our website or the Farella YouTube Channel, where there is a playlist just for state filing requirements episodes.
