What are the necessary steps to be taken to form a Florida nonprofit corporation?

The first step is to file nonprofit articles of incorporation with the proper state agency. After the nonprofit articles are filed, solicitation documents must be filed with the proper state agency and the Federal 501(c)(3) must be filed for the corporation to be able to obtain tax free status.

Florida requires a minimum of three directors.

What are the advantages of filing a Federal 501(c)(3)
