"Private foundations, although constituting a relatively small portion of the charitable community, are burdened with extensive federal tax law requirements that belie their numbers, and substantially regulate and circumscribe their operations. This body of law has steadily grown since its inception as a considerable portion of the Tax Reform Act of 1969. This book came about in reflection of this expanding and expansive aspect of the law pertaining to these unique forms of tax-exempt organizations. We have attempted to both capture and summarize this law, and to provide guidance as to compliance with it"--

Understanding Nonprofit and Tax Exempt Organizations is a guide for the law student or practitioner who is looking to understand the law governing the nonprofit, tax exempt sector. This text deals with the many types of tax exempt organizations; the rules, regulations and limitations imposed on tax exempt organizations by the courts, the Internal Revenue Code (IRS) and the Treasury Regulations (the Regulations); the charitable contribution and fundraising issues affecting tax exempt organizations; the unrelated business income tax, excise taxes and intermediate sanctions imposed on tax exempt organizations; and the rules regarding private foundations.

The Second Edition of Understanding Nonprofit and Tax Exempt Organizations begins with an introduction to nonprofit organizations by discussing the relevant law in general, as nonprofits are governed by state law. Next, tax exempt organizations are discussed, by first giving the reader the background on where such organizations fit in the nonprofit sector; why the organizations are given preferential tax treatment; what form these organizations take; and how such organizations are governed and dissolved. The Second Edition also provides detailed explanations of the various rules, regulations and tests they must follow in order to obtain or retain their tax exempt status as well as the consequences for failure to comply.

Most national taxation regimes afford certain privileges to non-governmental non-profit organisations of public benefit. However, cross-border extension of such privileges has failed to materialise in any significant way, despite various efforts and the existence of model treaty provisions and even draft NGO multilateral tax treaties. Although experts tend to oppose harmonisation?on the grounds that international privilege would sink to the lowest national level?there does seem to be general agreement that tax incentives to encourage the cross-border activity of public benefit organisations should be clarified and augmented. The expert authors whose work is assembled in this book offer rich perspectives on this issue. Their various analyses include the following: detailed discussion of the objections of principle commonly advanced by states; the role of discrimination legislation in strategies to advance cross-border privilege; the continuing failure of political will to achieve changes in this area of taxation; the potential of reciprocal unilateral action; tax treaties and non-tax treaties with tax-related provisions; multilateral initiatives (OECD, UN, EU, Council of Europe, World Bank, regional treaties); and, Documentation (International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation). Ten of the essays discuss relevant measures in specific countries and regions. The volume includes extensive primary source material, including selected provisions from bilateral tax treaties, national tax arrangements, and the Interphil?s draft for a European Convention on the Tax Treatment of NGOs , as well as full texts of Round Table declarations, and the European Convention on the Recognition of Legal Personality of International NGOs. Quite apart from its importance as an in-depth study of a taxation issue of significant social value, The Tax Treatment of NGOs will be of great assistance to NGOs and their supporters and benefactors. It opens the way to more vigorous lobbying power for the NGO community to influence changes in taxation law and policy. Because this issue promises to soon be one ?whose time has come,? taxation officials and policymakers cannot afford to ignore this book.
