The Internal Revenue Service, in collaboration with Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation, Arizona State University, will host three one-day workshops in Phoenix on Dec. 7-9 to help small and mid-sized tax-exempt organizations in the area comply with tax obligations and maintain tax-exempt status.
The workshops are designed for board members, officers, volunteers and staff of these organizations and for the tax preparers and stakeholders who work with them, according to a news release.
IRS agents will go over the basics of tax compliance for exempt organizations. Topics include activities that can jeopardize 501(c)(3) status, unrelated business income, gaming and employment issues. Particular emphasis will be given to explaining the revised Form 990 and 990-EZ annual information returns that tax-exempt organizations submit to the IRS, according to the release.
The workshops will be at the Black Canyon Conference Center, 9440 N. 25 Ave., Phoenix. Cost is $45 per person and includes a handbook and relevant IRS forms and publications. Pre-registration is required.
