It just got easier for watchdog groups to police the sector!

The IRS announced this week that is is now releasing electronically-filed 990s, 990-EZs, and 990-PFs from 2011 to the present in machine readable format.  This change will make it much easier for watchdog groups and others interested in analyzing 990 data for trends (and issues) in the sector.  For more information see the IRS' notice, and my previous blog post on the subject.

Minneapolis Paid Sick Leave Ordinance

On May 27, 2016, the Minneapolis City Council voted unanimously to approve an ordinance that will require employers to provide paid sick leave to most workers. 

1023-EZ fee going down July 1st

The IRS just announced today, via Revenue Procedure 2016-32, that it will be reducing the user fee (filing fee) for the 1023-EZ from $400 to $275, effective July 1st.  While it is cheaper, faster, and easier -- I still continue to caution users of the 1023-EZ.  See my prior posts here and here.  For my real inital thoughts (the snarky ones), please contact me privately (or perhaps read about it on Twitter).

EO Update Opportunity - TEGE Gulf Coast

I am happy to announce that I, along with Heidi Christianson at Nilan Johnson Lewis, will be co-hosting a remote viewing/participation opportunity on June 10th.  The TEGE Council Gulf Coast Area will be putting an an Exempt Organization Update and is allowing remote locations to participate via Web-Ex.  This is a great opportunity to hear speakers you normally only hear at larger, national conferences!  For more information about the agenda and to register, please visit their website here.

Nilan Johnson Lewis is generously offering bagels and coffee for attendees that morning starting at 7:30.  Lunch will be on your own at some of the wonderful food trucks that populate the area, or in the skyway.  Nilan Johnson Lewis will not validate parking.  

I have been told by the TEGE Gulf Coast folks that CPE has been applied for and approved for this program.  Currently there is no CLE credit provided (however that may change).
