Why use InstantNonprofit AUTOPILOT?


Since 2010, the IRS has revoked the 501(c)3 Status of over 300,000 nonprofits, for failing to file the IRS Form 990. Meanwhile many more nonprofit corporations face administrative dissolution at the state level for similar reasons. Many of these organizations were unaware, or unable to recover, as reinstatement can cost thousands of dollars and months of red tape.

Here's a short video explaining how Autopilot prevents these problems and how it works...

The IRS website is like a kick in the throat. I needed a solution for the huge paperwork problem.

InstantNonprofit does the heavy lifting, so you can focus on your purpose. It's the best investment I made for my nonprofit, hands down.

“Everyone needs Nonprofit Autopilot! Me most of all..."

Guys, you've been with me since I started, and I love how easy and streamlined it was to get started with Incorporation and Tax Exempt Status. But I'm not the greatest at keeping up with annual bureaucratic filings and paperwork. So I REALLY appreciate you rolling out this service - it is just what we all need!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have a current 501(c)3 status to enroll in AUTOPILOT?

Yes, you first must have your 501(c)3 status approved and current to enroll in AUTOPILOT. 

If you don’t yet have your 501(c)3 status, or need help reinstating your status, we specialize in nonprofit 501(c)3 formation and approval at a fraction of the cost and time of other professional services with simple to use technology and a friendly, expert staff. 

Our 501(c)3 formation and approval services include nonprofit incorporation, EIN, and the 1023 application for IRS approved tax-exempt status with an IRS approval guarantee, or your money back. 

You can learn more about our 501(c)3 packages and pricing here...

What is AUTOPILOT by Instant Nonprofit and how does it work?

Once you have your 501(c)3 status It’s critical to file your annual federal and state requirements or you risk getting your tax exempt status revoked. Our AUTOPILOT program puts these filing requirements on complete autopilot so you can focus on your mission and we take care of all your paperwork. 

You can check out everything else that you get with AUTOPILOT here…

How long do I need to stay in the AUTOPILOT program?  What if I decide to cancel?

Signing up for AUTOPILOT requires a 12 month commitment to the program. There’s a lot of work involved in filing your annual federal and state requirements. 


If you don’t, or file them incorrectly, you risk getting your tax exempt status revoked. Worse, you could potentially face additional penalties from the IRS and costly legal issues as a result of that. 


The $37/month spreads out the cost of all this work over the whole year and gives you peace of mind that your nonprofit status is safe and guaranteed.


Our AUTOPILOT program puts these filing requirements on autopilot so you can focus on your mission. If you decide to cancel, you can do so at any time. Just understand that if you cancel before a full 12 month period is up, that also cancels your benefits provided by the AUTOPILOT program. 

I have questions about signing up for AUTOPILOT before enrolling, who can I talk to?

If you have a few questions you’d like to get answered before joining AUTOPILOT,  then please book a no-cost consultation call on our calendar here and we’ll be happy to answer anything for you.
