Foley Partner Michael G. Bailey hosted, IRS Seeks to Expand Tax-Exempt Bond and Other Reporting Requirements for Exempt Organizations: Important Implications of the Proposed Revisions to Form 990, the fourth session in a five part series, Creating An Effective Post-Bond Issuance Tax Compliance Program.
On June 14, 2007, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released substantial proposed revisions to Form 990. Although the IRS is presenting the proposed form as a "discussion draft," the proposed revisions suggest the direction of the IRS in many key areas. Foley attorneys Michael G. Bailey and Mark T. Schieble discussed the important implications of these changes, with a particular focus on the proposed new tax-exempt bond information reporting requirements and other revised reporting requirements. Because it is very likely that the proposed Form 990 will be substantially revised after public comment, our discussion did not concentrate on the specific wording of the form. Rather, we focused on the general themes and implications of the form and how the proposed revisions tie into other compliance initiatives of the IRS.
The Creating An Effective Post-Bond Issuance Tax Compliance Program web conference series featured post-issuance tax-exempt bond compliance in light of the Internal Revenue Service's recent enforcement initiatives focused on nonprofit organizations.
