The Kentucky Nonprofit Network Inc., in partnership with the Department of Community and Leadership Development in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, will host “Stay Exempt,” one-day workshops 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 August 13 in Northern Kentucky and August 15 in Lexington. “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 Inc. “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 Northern Kentucky, KNN will host “Stay Exempt” at the Campbell County Cooperative Extension office, 3500 Alexandria Pike, Highland Heights. The Lexington workshop will be held at the Fayette County Cooperative Extension office, 1140 Red Mile Place. Both gatherings will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT. Registration fee for KNN members is $40; nonmembers’ fee is $50.

Continuing Legal Education (CLE) and Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits are available for attendees.
