Spotlight on Section 501(c)(3) Organizations

Presented By:
Michael Fine

Wyatt Tarrant & Combs LLP

You will Learn:

  • Why so many, including the IRS, care about charity governance practices
  • What the IRS asks about during governance audits and through annual tax reporting
  • About the recent mistakes of other Section 501(c)(3) organizations
  • How your organization can implement effective practices to ensure compliance and avoid scrutiny.

This 10-minute webinar focuses on the bright spotlight being placed on charitable, tax-exempt organizations by Congress, the Internal Revenue Service, state legislatures and charity officials, the media, and the tax-exempt organization sector itself. In this quick preview, we lay the foundation for IRS concerns on charity governance practices, we note current federal and state reform efforts, and we highlight recent examples of flawed governance practices.
