Getting It Right: IRS Form 990 for Mid-Size & Large Organizations

Are you filling out your 990 correctly?  Are you using it to highlight the organization's work and effective management?  The IRS Form 990 has become more important as it is scrutinized by IRS, grantors, donors, the media and competitors.  Filing correctly is critical to ensure the nonprofit organization is properly presented to the public.

Learning Objectives

- understand key areas of the IRS Form 990

After this class, you will be familiar with:
- tax compliance and governance sections of the tax return

- how to identify unrelated business income
- lobbying expenses and their effect on your tax exempt status
- common mistakes made on the IRS Form 990
