 About This Webinar

Subject Matter

This is the third 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), there are still many parts and lines on the 12-part core form and the 16 Schedules that are misunderstood by Form 990 preparers and reviewers. Additionally, there are many examples of “red flags” on the Form 990 that a Form 990 preparer or reviewer needs to be cognizant of. Finally, there are some revisions to the 2011 Form 990 and its corresponding Instructions which the exempt organization practitioner needs to be aware.

Accordingly, this webinar will address the new lines and questions on the 2011 version of the Form 990, the Internal Revenue Service “red flags” contained on the Form 990 and those lines and questions on the Form 990 which preparers and reviewers tend to misinterpret or misunderstand.

This webinar will be focused upon providing the exempt organization practitioner and exempt organization executive 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.


For those registering for this webinar on or prior to June 19, 2012, the cost is $139. For those registering on or after June 20, 2012, the cost is $159. Please see below if you plan to have multiple participants in the same location.


As with our prior webinars, this webinar will be conducted through GoToWebinar. However, there is one important difference to note. For the first time, we will be offering webinar participants the opportunity to access the audio portion of our webinars either through their computers (VOIP) or via a telephone call-in number. A recording of this webinar on DVD will be available immediately after the conducting of the webinar if you are unable to attend the webinar at the scheduled time, however, CPE can only be issued to live participants.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain an understanding of the Form 990 preparation “hot buttons” and “”red flags” from an Internal Revenue Service perspective
  • Become aware of the most significant revisions to the 2011 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
  • Learn strategies to most effectively and efficiently prepare and review a Form 990 for any type of exempt organization


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 credit is needed for multiple participants in the same location, it may be  possible that such can be obtained for $69 per participant who desires a CPE certificate so long as the appropriate controls are internally implemented to monitor attendance (note: one registrant will be required to complete a full registration via GoToWebinar at the full price). Please contact for more information regarding this and/or to register additional participants.
