Description:Topic:  50 Ways to Lose Your Exemption
Presented by:  Catherine Pennington, CPA

Were you aware that a Non-Profit can actually lose their tax exemption? Had you ever thought how devastating this would be should it happen? You owe it to your Non-Profit or Non-Profit clients to be as educated on this topic as possible. 

What you’ll learn:
The guiding principle of this session is that if you have a tax exemption, there is a way you can lose it. We’ll examine the specific requirements of common types of exempt status, requirements that need to be monitored or avoided. We’ll also look at several real-life examples of organizations that either lost their exemption of failed in the attempt to gain exempt status and what they might have done differently. 

Who will Benefit?
The session will benefit CFO's and Executive Directors who present regularly to their Finance Committee and board, financial heads of staff at non-profits as well as auditors who make financial presentations to their non-profit clients
