       =========================================================
       IRS Updates, March 2008
       The Exempt Organizations Division of the Internal Revenue
Service was busy in February. It posted information on governance and
related topics for 501(c)(3) organizations; announced that registration
is open for one-day workshops for small and mid-sized
       501(c)(3) organizations; released Form 990-N; posted a database
of Form 990-N information; and released fact sheets on the complaint,
examination, and compliance processes. Read on for details.

  Governance and Related Topics for 501(c)(3) Organizations
  Want to know what the IRS considers best practices in governance for
501(c)(3) organizations? Check out new information posted on the IRS Web
site.
       * Governance and Related Topics for 501(c)(3) Organizations:
www.irs.gov/charities/article/0,,id=178221,00.html
  Workshops for Small and Mid-sized 501(c)(3) Organizations
  The Exempt Organizations Division will be back on the road in April
and May with its one-day workshops for small and mid-sized 501(c)(3)
organizations:
       * April 1, 2, and 3, 2008-Alexandria, Virginia (Washington,
D.C., metro area)
       * May 6, 7, and 8, 2008-Austin, Texas
       * May 20, 21, and 22, 2008-Columbus, Ohio
  The workshops will look at the benefits and responsibilities of
tax-exempt status; actions that can jeopardize an organization's exempt
status; unrelated business income; employment issues; Form 990,
including Form 990-N; and required disclosures, including those imposed
by the Pension Protection Act of 2006. Pre-registration is required.
  E-Postcard Filing for Smaller Nonprofits
  If your organization is required to file a Form 990-N, you can now
find it on-line at the Web site of the Urban Institute, the IRS's
partner for this project. Organizations with gross receipts of $25,000
or less (except for churches and their auxiliaries and organizations
included in a group return) are generally required to file the Form
990-N, which is also known as the e-Postcard.
  Filing in 2008 is required for tax years that ended on or after
December 31, 2007. The form is due each year by the 15th day of the 5th
month after the end of an organization's tax year and must be submitted
electronically. No extensions will be granted.
  Although there will be no financial penalties for late filing, the
consequences for failing to file at all will be dire: beginning May 15,
2010, any organization required to file a Form 990-N, 990, 990-EZ, or
990-PF that has not done so for three consecutive years will
automatically lose its tax-exempt status.
  In order to file a Form 990-N, the following information about your
organization is needed: Employer Identification Number (EIN); tax year;
legal name and mailing address; other names used; name and address of
the principal officer; Web site URL, if your organization has one;
confirmation that gross receipts are generally $25,000 or less; and, if
applicable, a statement that your organization has gone out of business
or is in the process of doing so.
  You can search for and view an individual organization's Form 990-N
data from the IRS Web site; scroll to the "Search for e-Postcards-Public
Disclosure" section near the bottom of
www.irs.gov/charities/article/0,,id=169250,00.html.
  The IRS is asking everyone to spread the word about Form 990-N. As
Lois G. Lerner, director of the Exempt Organizations Division, noted,
"People do a lot to help their communities by volunteering their time
and money to local charities. We're asking them to also offer a helping
hand by making sure that charities know about the law change."
       * For more information:
www.irs.gov/charities/article/0,,id=169250,00.html
       * To file Form 990-N: http://epostcard.form990.org
<http://epostcard.form990.org/>
  Fact Sheets on Complaint, Examination, and Compliance Processes
  Two new fact sheets have been made available by the Exempt
Organizations Division. The first is an explanation of the process
undertaken by the IRS when it receives a complaint about a nonprofit
organization, from initial analysis of the situation to the decision on
whether to pursue an examination or not. The second outlines the
differences between examinations that are used to determine tax
liability and compliance checks that determine if an organization is
following regulations in regards to record keeping, reporting, and other
activities.

Australian Vietnam Veterans Study
This 1997 study of 50,000 Australian Viet Nam veterans entitled "Mortality of
Vietnam Veterans: The Veteran Cohort Study" found that the death rate among
veterans between 1980 and 1994 was some seven percent higher than for the
overall male population. In addition, the study found that the death rate from
cancer was about 20 percent above average, and that veterans may face an
increased risk of death by suicide. The Australian government received this
information seriously since it has been documented that those individuals who
were in Viet Nam had successfully passed rigid medical examinations and were
therefore considered
"healthy"; those with congenital medical issues were rejected as conscripts.
The report is available from:
Commonwealth Department of Veterans' Affairs
PO Box 21
Canberra, ACT 2601
AUSTRALIA
