Helping tax-exempt organizations deliver lasting value.

Take advantage of tax-exempt status

Tax-exempt status: It brings obvious advantages, yet significant challenges.

How can you effectively maintain compliance with constantly changing rules and regulations? How can you seize business opportunities in an increasingly complex, competitive and global environment?

KPMG’s Development & Exempt Organizations (DEO) professionals understand the unique rules and regulations that apply to tax-exempt organizations, and also understand that every non-profit is also a business. We help tax-exempt organizations and their for-profit affiliates manage risks and drive compliance while capitalizing on new opportunities and navigating ever-changing challenges.

Our DEO practice supports tax-exempt organizations across five sectors:

  • Exempt healthcare
  • Higher education
  • Development and government
  • Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and private foundations
  • Commercial


  • We have been one of the leaders in the Development & Exempt arena for more than 20 years.
  • Our global network of dedicated professionals includes past IRS officials, tax professionals, sector-leading advisers and accountants.
  • Our U.S. teams are strongly connected to KPMG International's network of member firms in more than 150 countries.

Some or all of the services described herein may not be permissible for KPMG audit clients and their affiliates.
