The redesigned Form 990 reflects IRS’ stepped up regulations on nonprofits’ corporate governance. The revised form has added numerous questions to identify activities and transactions which may affect their tax-exempt status and the possibility for their board/management to be subject to possible sanctions. It is therefore essential that nonprofits and their advisors be in the know with respect to recent nonprofit tax compliance and governance and Form 990 issues to avoid potential pitfalls.
The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished experts to provide an in-depth discussion on how nonprofits can comply with the complicated tax reporting requirements and how to formulate governance policies to help them maintain their nonprofit status and be able to properly answer the questions required on Form 990. Speakers will address the key issues in the mix including:
- Overview of the Revised Form 990
- Implications of the Revised Form 990 to Corporate Governance and Executive Compensation
- Guidelines and Best Practices in Implementing Governance Policies and Procedures
- Tax Reporting Compliance
- Political Activities
- And Up-to-the-Minute Regulatory Updates
A Live interaction with the audience in a question and answer format is also included in this event.
