CAH Webinar Series - IRS Oversights - What is Your Risk?

Webinar Description:
While most tax exempt organizations do not regularly pay income tax to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), it does not mean that the IRS doesn't care about their tax compliance. For example, all tax exempt hospitals are required to be in compliance with the rules under 501(r) related to community needs assessments, financial assistance, and billing and collection policies. Failure to comply can cause the organization issues including monetary penalties and the potential for loss of tax exempt status.

In this session, we will share real life experiences from actual audits related to 501(r) compliance, review the areas of primary focus, discuss real life struggles you may be having in properly implementing the 501(r) rules, and provide suggestions on what you should do to address any exposures you may have. In addition, we will discuss other areas of tax compliance and what you can do to minimize your risk.

Learning Objectives:    

  • Understand issues the IRS is focusing on under 501(r) in examinations of exempt hospitals
  • Identify areas for improvement in your hospital's implementation of the 501(r) rules
  • Identify areas of tax risk and develop strategies to minimize risk
