IRS Form 990 - Ready?

We just posted two articles to help you prepare to use the new IRS Form 990. They are intended to help you begin to understand how to best complete the form - in the spirit of compliance and to help build public trust.

Here is what you need to know --> There are steps you must take this year in order to be ready to use the form next year. Do not wait until next year to have your auditor tell what you should have done this year.

Get started by reading the articles posted on smartgivers.org or by registering for a 990 webinar. We have also posted two new model policies you might need - a whisteblower policy and a document retention policy. We already have a conflict of interest policy with an annual witten disclosure for download. You can also sign up for a webinar on 10/27.

What else do you want to know about the new 990? Let me know by emailing me. If someone else is providing training we will direct you to them or we might design a bit of future help for you. If you have training available let me know and I will post it here.

I will also post after attending sessions at this week's MCN conference. Stay tuned, we might actually be blogging regularly.
