Title:

Internal Revenue Code Section 506 Notice Requirement For 501(c)(4)s

Description:

An Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(4) ‘social welfare' organization gives greater flexibility than does a 501(c)(3) charity, but is also fraught with minefields (as demonstrated by the controversy surrounding the IRS' handling of exemption applications from ‘Tea Party' groups).

Recently, Congress and the IRS added another: A new 501(c)(4) generally must notify the IRS of its existence and intended activities or else face penalties and even loss or denial of its tax-exempt status.

This webinar helps the persons responsible for forming and operating 501(c)(4)s to understand how to complete the notice (IRS Form 8976) and how and when to file it. The content also explains other aspects of forming and operating a 501(c)(4) organization - for example, lobbying; electioneering; whether and how to file a Form 1024 exemption application; protection of donor lists; and issues with ‘affiliated' organizations like 501(c)(3)s and PACs.

Failing to have a system in place to file the Form 8976 notice and address these other issues can result in monetary penalties and, even worse, denial or revocation of tax-exempt status. This topic is critical for persons organizing and operating 501(c)(4)s so they can institute and operate the appropriate internal controls.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.
