As non-profit and tax exempt organizations come under increasing scrutiny by the Internal Revenue Service the required tax reporting for these entities has become more in-depth and specifically focused on the Board of Directors’ actions and stewardship responsibilities. We have successfully assisted many organizations with developing and implementing policies that are in compliance with the IRS’s initiatives.
