Do initial startup founders need to file Form D or any other form with the SEC? Or is there some other exemption for founders that exempts them from filing anything with the SEC?
For many startup founders, navigating the securities law landscape (federal and state) can be tricky and is best tackled with the help of an experienced attorney. As a general rule, Section 5 of the Securities Act of 1933, requires that any offer or sale of securities must be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission unless an available exemption from registration exists.There are three common scenarios when securities laws typically come into play for most early stage startups:Issuing equity to the foundersFirst and foremost, “founders stock” is not an actual type of class of security. It is simply a term used to typically describe common stock that is granted to founders, usually in the form of restricted stock that is (and always should) be subject to vesting.Securities Act Rule 4(a)(2) provides an exemption from registering an issuance of such securities not involving a public offering that is sold to people who take the initiative in founding or organizing the business. One thing to note, however, is that even if you are selling shares to founders under this exemption, there may be requirements under state “blue sky” laws that may need to be complied with.Raising money from investorsWhen it comes to raising money from outside investors, founders need to be aware of various securities laws (state and federal) that may apply. Regardless of the fundraising structure (e.g. convertible debt, SAFEs, stock issuances, etc.) a startup needs to follow the registration requirements under Section 5 before issuing its securities. Luckily, there are some available exemptions from registration that many companies rely on to raise money without running afoul of the federal securities laws. If you raise money while running afoul of these laws, you may become subject to civil and criminal penalties and any investments that are received may be subject to rescission by a disgruntled investor - neither of which you want to ever deal with.The private placement exemption under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and the Section 506(b) safe harbor under Reg D are the two most common ways startups navigate through securities laws. Here is some more information on both of these exemptions that may be helpful: Seed Financing • Compliance with Securities Laws - Should I SignIncentivizing non-founding team membersLastly, many startups use equity (typically in the form of options subject to vesting) to incentivize other team members to be a part of the business (often since the ability to pay top dollar in cash compensation is not an option for most in the early days). Rule 701 of the Securities Act permits a startup to offer equity to consultants, employees and directors without having to comply with federal securities registration. This rule also has some very specific dollar and percentage threshold limitations on issuances as well as a host of other restrictions and requirements. Therefore it is best for one to consult an attorney with experience setting up equity incentive plans that are in compliance with both state and federal laws before doing so.
Is it true that some seed financings do not constitute a public offering and so are exempt, not just from registration, but even from claiming and filing an exemption with Form D?
While in certain circumstances it may be technically "legal" to offer or sell securities in reliance on the broad "private placement" exemption, it is often much more desirable to only rely on the "safe harbors" that involve filing Form D.The question confuses a couple of concepts, so hopefully this will clarify a bit. All sales of securities involve an "offering," as you can't sell securities unless they are offered. The Federal rule is that all offerings (and sales) must be registered (registration is essentially what is involved in "going public") or exempt. One exemption, contained in Section 4(2) of the '33 Act, is that offerings that are not "public" are exempt from the registration requirement.  If a securities offering is relying on 4(2), there is no requirement to file a Form D.So yes, technically certain offerings are so small and so private that they could fall under the 4(2) private placement exemption from the federal rules.BUT... how small and private do they have to be, and what about state rules?There are two problems with 4(2) private placements. One, there is very little certainty as to what the limits of a "public" offering are. There is virtually no guidance from the SEC, and the US Supreme Court has indicated that even an offering to one or two people might not be private if those people require the protection of the securities laws. Two, even though a 4(2) private offering is exempt from federal requirements, it's not necessarily exempt from state requirements. Thus, the SEC created a set of rules, called Regulation D, that establishes a set of "safe harbors" which companies can rely on to assure that they are within the meaning of a private transaction. These safe harbors are commonly known by their rule numbers: 504, 505 and 506. One of the requirements of these safe harbors is filing a Form D. The other benefit of these safe harbors is that if you are within them, any state registration requirements are pre-empted.Failure to stay within the safe harbors and instead relying on 4(2) can create a lot of problems.4(2) has other requirements that Reg D does not. For example, the whole offering needs to be private, not just the sales. The issuer needs to pra high level of disclosure in a 4(2) offering, whereas there is no disclosure requirement in a Reg D offering (so long as all purchasers are accredited). It's easy to run afoul of these rules, and there are no guarantees the SEC or a court might not later find the offering does not, in fact, meet the exemption, and order a reversal of affected transactions.Because of these dangers, investors and acquirers are much more reluctant to invest in companies where securities were offered in a 4(2) transaction. Often in connection with later financing a company will need to secure an opinion of counsel that the previous offerings complied with securities laws, and lawyers may not issue the opinion if the offering was in reliance on 4(2).Among other reasons, that is why lawyers are so insistent that all offerings and sales fit into Reg D. Other than a sale to the founders or something similar, virtually all private placements are under the safe harbors.Finally: anyone selling securities absolutely needs the advice of a business lawyer... it is complex and can carry very significant consequences.

Is anyone exempt from filing taxes?
Requirement to file depends on your gross income.Generally, if you are single with gross income under $12,000 or married with joint gross income under $24,000, you would not be required to file a Federal tax return.But if you are married filing separately (I presume this means that your spouse if filing separately), then you’re required to file unless your income is under $5 (you read that right, five dollars).See the chart on this page: Do You Need To File A Tax Return In 2019?(This information is for the 2022 tax year; you can expect it to change in future years.)
Is anyone exempt from filing taxes in the USA?
Hello,Not everyone is required to file an income tax return each year. Generally, if your total income for the year doesn't exceed certain thresholds, then you don't need to file a federal tax return. The amount of income that you can earn before you are required to file a tax return also depends on the type of income, your age and your filing status.For 2022. all taxpayers are eligible to claim a standard deduction, and if not the dependent of another taxpayer, then one exemption as well. The standard tax deduction and exemption amountsare fixed by the government before the tax filing season and generally increase for inflation each year.For tax years after 2022. the standard deduction is greatly increased while exemptions are no longer part of the tax calculation.Your income that is equal to or less than the sum of the exemption and standard deduction is not taxable, the IRS doesn't require you to file a return in years your income doesn't exceed that sum. When determining whether you need to file a return, you don't include tax-exempt income. In 2022 for example, if you are under age 65 and single, you must file a tax return if you earn $10,400 or more, which is the sum of the 2022 standard deduction for a single taxpayer plus one exemption.For further information please click on the link U.S Tax Filing Archives | H&R Block IndiaHope this was useful.Thank you,Ankita Lodha.
There is a section of a tax form that asks if you are exempt from paying taxes, who does this refer to?
I am assuming you are asking as a US taxpayer, because you were not very clear on that. Here are some general guidelines for US taxpayersDependent Taxpayers - Children, or other similar dependents, claimed on another tax return may be exempt from paying federal income tax. As of 2022. a child that earned more than $6,200 or has more than $1,000 in unearned income must file taxes. Unearned income can include taxable interest, distributions from a trust and ordinary dividends. A child that isn't claimed on another taxpayer's return may have to file, but does get the standard deduction of $6,200 and the $3,950 exemption for one taxpayer.Elderly Taxpayers - Some elderly taxpayers are exempt from paying federal taxes based on income. For example, single taxpayers age 65 or older don't pay if their gross income is $11,699 or less. Married taxpayers filing jointly are exempt if their combined income does not exceed $22,699. The income figures don't include Social Security benefits and retirement income, which are treated differently.Retired Taxpayers - The source of their income determines if retirees are exempt. For example, a certain amount of Social Security benefits could be exempt from federal taxes, especially if it's the taxpayer's only income source. As of 2022. the cap was $25,000 for single taxpayers and $32,000 for married taxpayers filing http://jointly.To determine that, complete Form 1040 and list the total benefits received on Line 20A and the taxable amount on Line 20B.File Anyway - Even if you are exempt from paying federal taxes, you may need to file a return to get refunds. In addition, many taxpayers in lower income brackets are eligible for the earned income credit. For example, parents and guardians of dependent children may be eligible for child tax credits. Certain students can claim credits for the cost of education. Check your eligibility for all available tax credits to decide whether to file.State and Local Requirements - Many states have their own criteria for who must pay taxes. Some follow federal guidelines and others have separate requirements. Check with your state revenue agency to see what applies to your filing status.
Do municipalities have to file form 5500 to the IRS in the US? Why?
The instructions (Page on dol.gov) specifically exempts government plans.  I cannot address why, perhaps because they operate as non-profits.
