Tax-Exempt Organizations: Special Problems with Charitable Entities

Tax-exempt organizations face a new tax reality under our new tax reform law. In the rush to understand the changes made by the 2017 federal tax reform law (P.L. 115-97, known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA)), tax-exempt organizations may not yet have had time to consider how the federal changes may affect state taxes. Similarly, state taxing authorities and state tax practitioners may be so wrapped up in the state and local tax (SALT) implications of the TCJA for individuals or regular C corporations (especially changes affecting the 2017 tax year) that they may not yet have had time to consider the SALT implications of tax reform for tax-exempt organizations. There are more questions than answers when it comes to both the federal and state tax implications of tax reform for tax-exempt organizations.

Richard Sills of Holland & Knight joins us to clarify the impact on these entities.
