About This Webinar:

Subject Matter

This is the seventh exempt organization webinar being conducted by YH Advisors, the Exempt Org Experts. Notwithstanding the fact that the Form 990 was recently overhauled by the Internal Revenue Service (first effective for the 2008 tax year), the Internal Revenue Service still annually makes significant revisions to the Form 990. Additionally, since the Form 990 is an information return (and not technically a tax return), there are many facets of the Form 990 which are misunderstood by many preparers and/or reviewers of the Form 990.

Accordingly, this webinar will address the new lines and questions on the 2012 version of the Form 990, common Form 990 preparation mistakes, the “trip-ups” and “red flags” contained on the Form 990 and will provide ample opportunity to all attendees to receive answers to the their Form 990 specific questions.

This webinar will be focused upon providing the exempt organization practitioner and exempt organization executive/financial personnel with guidance and valuable resources/tools to best ensure that they possess the requisite knowledge regarding the preparation and review of the Form 990. There are no prerequisites and no advance preparation required for attending this webinar.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain an understanding of the Form 990 preparation “trip-ups” and “red flags” from an Internal Revenue Service perspective
  • Become aware of the most significant revisions to the 2012 version of the Form 990
  • Become familiar with the portions of the Form 990 which the Internal Revenue Service and state Attorneys General scrutinize most often
  • Receive answers to your most pressing Form 990 preparation questions

As with our prior webinars, this webinar will be conducted through GoToWebinar. We offer webinar participants the option to access the audio portion of our webinars either through their computers (VOIP) or via a telephone call-in number.

2.0 hours of CPE credit will be provided to all registered participants who attend the webinar, complete all of the required polling questions and complete/submit a webinar evaluation form. Only the registered participant who logs into the webinar, responds to the polling questions and completes and submits the evaluation form will receive CPE credit. If CPE is not needed for multiple participants, it is certainly permissible if others in the same location participate in the webinar at no additional cost. If CPE credit is needed for multiple participants in the same location, such can be obtained for $79 per participant who desires a CPE certificate.
