The accurate and complete preparation of Form 990—the information return that must be filed annually by most types of tax-exempt organizations—is key to maintaining tax-exempt status, public image, and fundraising capabilities. In December 2007, the IRS released the newly redesigned Form 990. The publication of this significantly expanded return has created, and is creating, many new laws . . . and confusion. Recognizing that far too many nonprofit organizations are unprepared for what is coming their way, The New Form 990 channels its stellar author team's decades of legal expertise to provide tax-exempt organizations and tax return preparers with the help they need to properly, effectively, and accurately prepare the new return.

Deftly covering both pre-existing and newly created laws as well as discussions of policy and preparation, The New Form 990 brims with line-by-line analyses as well as numerous checklists of steps to take to be in the best possible position to prepare the return. Coverage includes:
