Exempt Organizations Tax Services Update

The IRS's Exempt Organizations ("EO") division has released its 2011 Annual Report and 2012 Work Plan. Released annually, the Work Plan provides insight into new and ongoing projects that EO will be focused on during the current fiscal year.

This year's Work Plan signals increased scrutiny for organizations with unrelated business activities, large private foundations, and organizations with international operations. The Work Plan also calls attention to the work of the Advisory Committee on Tax Exempt and Government Entities ("ACT") with respect to group exemptions and returns and explains that a new questionnaire for central or parent organizations is forthcoming.
