EP and EO participating in 2016 IRS Nationwide Tax Forums – Register Now

Employee Plans and Exempt Organizations will participate in the 2016 IRS Nationwide Tax Forums in five cities starting in July. The Forums offer three days of seminars and workshops featuring speakers from both the IRS and tax practitioner organizations. In addition to getting the latest tax information, tax professionals can earn continuing education credits for their attendance.

This year, Employee Plans will present a one-hour seminar about SEP and SIMPLE IRA Plans. These plans offer an easy way for businesses to help employees get started saving for retirement. The seminar will discuss, among other items:

  • SEP and SIMPLE IRA plan contribution requirements and limitations
  • How employers calculate the allowable deductions

Exempt Organization will present a two-hour Form 990 Overview workshop. Form 990 is the annual information return most tax-exempt organizations use to provide information required by Internal Revenue Code section 6033. The workshop will also cover other topics of interest to exempt organizations and the practitioners who work with them, including:

  • How “auto-revoked” organizations can reinstate their tax-exempt status
  • New notice requirements for Section 501(c)(4) organizations enacted by Congress in 2015
