Most nonprofits are 501(c)(3) organizations, which means they are formed for religious, charitable, scientific, literary, or educational purposes and are eligible for federal and state tax exemptions. To create a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, first you need to form a Texas nonprofit corporation. Then you can apply for tax-exempt status from the IRS and the state of Texas.

Tax Identification Number
A Texas Tax ID is a nine-digit number that’s assigned by the state’s comptroller. This is separate from the federal Employer Identification Number (EIN), which is a nine-digit number issued to a business or company by the IRS. There is a distinct differentiation between the two sets of numbers, even though they both have the same amount of digits.
