The Form 990 continues to be the most publicly available document organizations publish detailing financial information, operational results, and governance policies. It is used by potential donors, media, regulators, and many others. However, given the length of the document, pinpointing key information and potential red flags can be a daunting task. During this session we will:

  • Define key terminology used by the IRS and how the definitions may differ from state law and accounting literature,
  • Clarify areas of confusion within the form,
  • Discuss what responses within the form are likely triggers for an IRS audit,
  • Identify other red flags. 

This webinar will be held on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 from 2-3:30pm ET.

Please register, here.

Following the webinar, NAGTRI will apply for CLE in all states with individuals in attendance and those who have completed the follow-up survey. It is up to the individual state board to approve or deny our request for credits. Please allow 6-8 weeks after the webinar concludes to inquire about CLE credits.

Please note, the webinar will not be posted on our public website after the program concludes. It will be available on PAGE - NAGTRI's Wiki. Members of Attorney General offices can request access to PAGE at
