Exempt Organization Annual Reporting Requirements: Reporting Compensation Paid by Related Organization on Form 990


Under what circumstances must compensation paid by a related organization be reported on Form 990?

For purposes of Form 990, Return of Organization Exempt from Income TaxPDF, related organization generally means a parent, subsidiary, brother or sister organization under common control, a sponsoring organization of or contributing employer to a voluntary employee beneficiary association (VEBA), or a section 509(a)(3) supporting or supported organization of the filing organization. An organization need not list individuals who are officers, directors, trustees, key employees or the five highest compensated employees of a related organization unless that person also serves in one or more of these capacities with the filing organization. Once a person is required to be listed in Part VII, Section A, however, compensation paid by a related organization to such person generally must be reported in Part VII if it equals or exceeds $10,000 from that organization. The $10,000 exception for amounts paid by a related organization only applies to reporting in Part VII of the core form; it does not apply to Schedule JPDF.
