WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today announced that it is offering one-day workshops for small and mid-sized section 501(c)(3) exempt organizations during fall and winter 2007 and spring 2008.
The workshop is designed for administrators, volunteers or tax practitioners who are responsible for an organization's tax compliance. Each workshop is limited to 200 attendees and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The non-refundable cost is $45 and includes a text and other IRS forms and publications. Pre-registration is required.
The dates and locations for the upcoming, one-day workshops are as follows:
- Salt Lake City, Utah — Nov. 14 and 15, 2007
- Columbia, S. C. — Dec. 4, 5 and 6, 2007

- Austin, Texas — May 6, 7 and 8, 2008
- Columbus, Ohio — May 20, 21 and 22, 2008
The workshops will explain what 501(c)(3) organizations must do to keep their tax-exempt status and comply with tax obligations. Each workshop will cover the benefits and responsibilities of tax-exempt status and actions that could jeopardize that status; unrelated business income and gaming; employment issues; an explanation of Form 990 and the new "e-Postcard" filing requirement; and required disclosures. Workshop leaders will also discuss how the Pension Protection Act of 2006 affects exempt organizations.
The workshop does not cover how to apply for tax-exempt status or compliance requirements for non-501(c)(3) organizations.
