The law, policy, and step–by–step guidanceto the all–new IRS Form 990

In December 2007, the IRS released the newly retooled Form 990, designed to enhance transparency, promote compliance, and inject the IRS into governance issues concerning tax–exempt organizations. The new return is now much lengthier than the previous return, requires much more disclosure of information by organizations than was previously required by the IRS, and will require tax–exempt organizations to monitor activities beginning with tax year 2008 for disclosure on the new form.

An essential tool for executive directors and officers of tax–exempt organizations as well as their lawyers and accountants, The New Form 990 provides a comprehensive and timely bellwether to help readers navigate this significant, complex, and extraordinary document. Providing the necessary laws and policies that correspond with the various questions and disclosures posed by the form, The New Form 990 also includes step–by–step instructions to assist tax–exempt organizations and tax return preparers with their analysis and preparation of the required reporting on the form.

The redesigned Form 990 is no ordinary information return and no ordinary government form. Jam–packed with law, policy, and preparation discussion and advice, The New Form 990 is designed to help readers save considerable time, money, and effort preparing and filing their new and expanded returns.
