The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture Department of Community and Leadership Development, in partnership with the Kentucky Nonprofit Network Inc., will host “Stay Exempt,” a one-day workshop to provide nonprofit organizations with information about maintaining their tax-exempt status and complying with tax obligations.
Led by experienced Internal Revenue Service Exempt Organizations specialists, the workshops will take place June 25 in Paducah and June 27 in Burlington. “Stay Exempt” is designed for staff or volunteers who are responsible for tax compliance in small or medium-sized 501(c)(3) organizations. Lawyers and tax professionals seeking a refresher course may also find the workshop useful.
Discussion topics will include an introduction to tax-exempt status, Form 990 series filing requirements, unrelated business income, charitable gaming, record keeping tips, required disclosures and employment issues.
“These workshops allow Kentucky nonprofits to hear directly from IRS officials,” said Danielle Clore, executive director of Kentucky Nonprofit Network. “KNN is excited to provide our nonprofits with this opportunity. We also hope attorneys and tax advisers will join us to learn the latest information needed to best assist their clients.”
In Paducah, KNN will host “Stay Exempt” at Baptist Health Paducah’s Heart Center Auditorium, 2501 Kentucky Ave. The Burlington workshop will be held at the Boone County Extension Service, 6028 Camp Ernst Road. Both gatherings will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. local time. Registration fee for members is $40; nonmembers’ fee is $50.
Continuing Legal Education (CLE) and Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits are available for attendees.
