If an organization is non-profit, does that mean that you can look at its "books"?

or what kind of things do things are they required to disclose. Salaries? net income (loss)? how can you access this information?

    Nonprofit incorporation is very similar to creating a regular corporation .

    The tax returns, articles of association are all documents which are accessible to the general public. But day to day account books are not accessible by outsiders.

    Non-Profit Tax Returns are to be filed with Internal Revenue Service.

    You can ask for their tax records and their audited financials. Increasingly you can get this information directly from the organization's web site, but if if is not, you can send a written request, or ask in person at their home office.
