IRS Offers Workshops to Help North Carolina Non-profits Stay Tax-Exempt

Rocky Mount workshop scheduled for Tue., Sept.25 or Wed.,
Sept.26, 2012

9 a.m., through 4 p.m., lunch is included

The Internal Revenue Service is offering workshops to educate tax-exempt organizations in North Carolina about meeting their tax obligations and maintaining their tax-exempt status.

The IRS will hold one-day “Stay Exempt” 501(c)(3) workshop at the Gateway Technology Center, 3400 N. Wesleyan Blvd., Rocky Mont, NC 27804

The workshops are coordinated by the ECU / NC State Collaborative, The Rocky Mount Area Chamber of Commerce, the Upper Coastal Plain SCORE and are designed especially for administrators or volunteers who are responsible for a small or medium-sized organization’s tax compliance.

The workshops are led by experienced IRS Exempt Organizations specialists and are approved for continuing education credits by practitioner licensing authorities in North Carolina.

The workshops will cover one of the most important ways to preserve an organization’s tax-exempt status, Form 990 series filing requirements. In the past two years 11,186 North Carolina non-profits have lost their tax-exempt status for not filing an annual Form 990 series return. This is one of the many reasons that the topics covered in this workshop are invaluable to a nonprofit organization.

Other workshop topics include discussion of activities that can jeopardize 501(c)(3) status, unrelated business income, charitable gaming, employment issues and tips on recordkeeping and answers to frequently asked questions.

The workshops cost $33 per person, pre-registration is required, lunch is included.
