It includes summaries of the law underlying each of the parts and questions in the return, so that the preparer can understand the background law in formulating answers on the return. The subject matter is particularly timely and relevant given the release of the draft Form 990 last summer, the expected release of the final Form 990 in early 2008, and the commencement of the first tax year to which the form applies on January 1, 2008.
