IRS Offers Workshops to Help Wisconsin Non-profits Stay Tax-exempt

Milwaukee and Eau Claire Conferences Scheduled for June

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

The IRS will hold one-day “Stay Exempt” 501(c)(3) workshops in two locations: June 26 in Milwaukee and June 28 in Eau Clare.

The workshops are hosted by the Helen Bader Institute for Nonprofit Management at UW-Milwaukee and UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education in collaboration with the Wisconsin Nonprofits Association, 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.

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 nearly 8000 Wisconsin 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 $50 per person and pre-registration is required.
