Free Legal Workshop: The Revised Form 990

The IRS has just completed the first substantial redesign of the Form 990, the annual information return nonprofits must file with the IRS, since the form was introduced in 1979. The revised form significantly changes the reporting requirements for many nonprofit organizations. Now, the IRS wants to know in more detail how your organization sets executive compensation and how much it is paying its executives; how it handles potential conflicts of interest; and whether it has a record retention policy, independent directors and a whistleblower policy.

This seminar is designed to walk you through all the new requirements so you will be prepared when you have to file the revised form. You will hear from attorneys and CPA's, including individuals who served on a taxpayer advisory group that provided feedback to the IRS while it was redesigning the form.

This workshop is designed for executive directors, CFO's, administrative officers, and finance professionals.
