San Antonio, TX asked in Tax Law, Business Formation and Business Law for Florida

Q: When a non-profit organization dissolves, does the IRS-required asset-distribution clause apply to fixed assets, home?

The previous question I asked was intended to apply to Florida not California. The scenario would apply to partial funds from 501(c)3 donors used to purchase a home in Baja California which is Mexico over 25 years ago while the majority was used to purchase from "own" private funds.

Does the IRS-required asset-distribution clause apply to fixed assets such as a home in this scenario under Florida law?

A: Yes, when a non-profit corporation is dissolved, the assets covered by the asset-distribution clause applies to real property such as that in Mexico. It's essentially a matter of federal law, so it doesn't much matter whether the non-profit was incorporated in Florida, California, or elsewhere.
