Implications of Tax Reform for Nonprofits

On December 22, 2017 the President signed the highly anticipated tax bill known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law. The tax act was the first major overhaul of the US tax system in three decades and contains provisions affecting nonprofit organizations and their donors. This presentation will review several provisions of the new law to prepare nonprofit organizations for the implementation. Topics will include: 

  • Automatic inclusion of qualified transportation and on-premises athletic facility fringe benefits as unrelated business income
  • Creation of an organizational excise tax on excessive compensation paid to the top five highest compensated employees
  • Separate computing of unrelated business income for each trade or business activity
  • Increased deductibility of individual donations to 60% of adjusted gross income
  • Repeal the donor substantiation exception for contemporaneous written acknowledgement for contributions reported by donees
  • And much more!
