Understanding Nonprofit and Tax Exempt Organizations is a guide for the law student or practitioner who is looking to understand the law governing the nonprofit, tax exempt sector. This text deals with the many types of tax exempt organizations; the rules, regulations and limitations imposed on tax exempt organizations by the courts, the Internal Revenue Code (IRS) and the Treasury Regulations (the Regulations); the charitable contribution and fundraising issues affecting tax exempt organizations; the unrelated business income tax, excise taxes and intermediate sanctions imposed on tax exempt organizations; and the rules regarding private foundations. This new Second Edition reflects recent changes in the law made by the Pension Protection Act of 2006 and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. The Second Edition of Understanding Nonprofit and Tax Exempt Organizations begins with an introduction to nonprofit organizations by discussing the relevant law in general, as nonprofits are governed by state law. Next, tax exempt organizations are discussed, by first giving the reader the background on where such organizations fit in the nonprofit sector; why the organizations are given preferential tax treatment; what form these organizations take; and how such organizations are governed and dissolved. The Second Edition also provides detailed explanations of the various rules, regulations and tests they must follow in order to obtain or retain their tax exempt status as well as the consequences for failure to comply.

A comprehensive guide to understanding the theory and implications of constitutional law as it relates to tax-exempt organizations Although the U.S. Constitution does not make any reference to nonprofit organizations—not surprising, since the Constitution is not a framework for the structure of the entirety of U.S. society—the Supreme Court has effusively shaped nonprofit law. Now, leading nonprofit law expert Bruce R. Hopkins discusses how tax-exempt organizations, including educational, religious, and healthcare institutions, are directly affected by constitutional law decisions and other pronouncements from the U.S. Supreme Court. Written by one of the country's leading legal authorities on tax-exempt organizations Provides a comprehensive, authoritative examination of constitutional law principles and their implications for tax-exempt organizations Includes coverage of the Supreme Court's perspective on nonprofit organizations and tax exemption, applicability of the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses to nonprofit religious organizations, the import of Free Speech principles in the charitable fundraising context, the constitutionality of the individual health insurance mandate, and more Other titles by Bruce R. Hopkins: The Law of Tax-Exempt Organizations, Tenth Edition, The Law of Fundraising, Fourth Edition, and The Tax Law of Charitable Giving, Fourth Edition Should religious organizations be exempt from taxation? Should religious groups get tax exemptions not available to other organizations? Are state charitable solicitation acts constitutional? Is the health insurance mandate constitutional? Is the Affordable Care Act subject to legal challenge at this time? How many ways has the Supreme Court shaped nonprofit law? Get answers to these questions and many more from Tax-Exempt Organizations and Constitutional Law.

The 2008 Supplement generally covers developments since the book was published, which basically means developments during 2007 such as: The new Form 990. Despite its size, complexity, and overreaching, this thing is a work of art. For large organizations, proper preparation of this return is going to be a mighty feat. Much new "law" is embedded in this form. In the context of nonprofit law, there has never been anything like this new Form 990.Other sets of rules are flowing, such as those pertaining to tax-exempt organizations and prohibited tax shelter transactions. (The biggest misstep by the agency in 2007 emerged, nonetheless, in the form of the draft of the IRS' good governance principles an unhelpful, poorly written, sometimes wacky document that should never have been issued, if only because the Division has more important things to do, and perhaps may be allowed a quiet demise.)Private letter rulings, some of them quite interesting, continue to tumble out of the agency. The IRS has made great progress in reducing its inventory of pending applications for recognition of exemption. IRS audits of exempt organizations, along with a host of compliance check projects, are on the rise.Back to the IRS, there are two momentous developments in the making. One is the forthcoming research and compliance initiative involving tax-exempt colleges and universities, with emphasis on these institutions' adherence to the unrelated business rules and operation of endowment funds. The other is the IRS' growing reliance on technology in the exempt organizations area, such as development of an electronic determinations case processing and tracking system (the TE/GE Determination System (TEDS)), the emerging Cyber Assistant to guide preparers of applications for recognition of exemption, and Internet-based workshops and educational material.
