ARTICLES

Excess Benefit Transactions

In 1996 the tax law was changed to provide an “intermediate sanction” for certain exempt organizations which engage in “excess benefit” transactions. Prior to that time, loss of exempt status was the only penalty the IRS could impose on organizations that were not operated exclusively for exempt purposes. The “intermediate sanction” created by Congress was a new tax, intended to be less severe than a revocation of exempt status.
 

Unintended Consequences of Remote Employees

One of your valued employees comes to you with exciting news – her partner has been offered a big promotion, but it requires a move across country.  She would love to continue working for your company and you would hate to have to replace her.  So you both agree on a plan that allows her to continue to work remotely from her new state. Everyone is happy, until you learn about the unintended consequences of having a remote employee.

Consulting Contract Do's and Don'ts

A good contract forms the basis for your collaboration with a consultant. Follow these do’s and don’ts to improve the likelihood of a good working relationship and results that meet your association’s needs.

Legal Elements of Executive Succession Planning

A CEO's departure, whether planned or unexpected, inevitably disrupts the routine workings of staff and volunteer leaders. But the path to new executive leadership will be smoother if a solid succession plan is in place, addressing key legal issues from employment law and contracts to the board's role.

Legal Friction Points in Component Relations

Even the best families have problems, and that reality extends to relationships between associations and their chapters. Although tensions can arise in a variety of areas, from governance to public policy, most can be cured with clear communication.

Update for Social Welfare Organizations

The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (the PATH Act) created the new IRS section 506. This section requires social welfare organizations (those claiming exemption under § 501(c)(4)) to provide notice to the IRS of their existence no later than 60 days after their formation.  

The PATH Act requires social welfare organizations that were in existence on or before December 18, 2015 to notify the IRS of their existence by June 15, 2016 unless they had submitted an IRS Form 1024 or Form 990 prior to December 18, 2015. 


The Basics of Board Committee Structure

From standing and ad hoc committees to task forces and advisory councils, a board accomplishes its work through a variety of smaller groups. Associations need to regularly evaluate their existing committee structure and be ready to adjust it based on the organization’s changing governance needs.


Finance and Audit Committees

Most associations have at least one board committee that oversees the association’s money.  Some associations have divided the oversight duties and assigned them to multiple committees.  A single association could have a budget committee, an investment committee, a finance committee and an audit committee.  Each committee would then be given a discrete charge and committee members would focus on the work required to meet that charge.  


Advice on Making Corporate Governance Changes

It’s not uncommon for an association’s corporate governance to become stale, a relic of the past, perhaps from the days of the association’s founding or from the last time the governance was overhauled two or three decades ago.  The governance structure that was perfect for the association in the 1950’s or 1970’s is not necessarily the right one for 2014 or 2020.  And yet many association leaders are reluctant to tackle corporate governance issues.


Are Your Membership Benefits Cutting It?

Probably the vast majority of association membership benefits are the traditional ones – a publication of some sort, access to the association’s “members only” website, discounts on conference fees and purchases, access to group insurance programs, etc. While these benefits retain their popularity with some segments of association members, are they really useful – or even interesting – to your younger members?


Is Retirement In Your Future?

Baby boomers filling association C-suite offices have begun to retire.  We can expect an increasing wave of retirements in the next 10 years as boomers trade board meetings for club meetings and move on to the next phase of their lives. Is your association ready?


"Old Act" DC Corporations Under the New Act

DC nonprofit corporations formed prior to 1963 have a choice to remain under DC's old nonprofit corporation act or to come under the new act. If the entity wants clearer guidance on structure, then electing to come under the new act would be an appropriate decision.   But if it prefers to stay under the old act, it must be careful to follow some new regulations or it will end up coming under the New Act.


Meetings Contracts

Every association holds meetings, whether a small board meeting or a convention for thousands.  Association executives responsible for meeting planning should be aware of some of the latest trends in negotiating hotel and convention contracts to protect their associations.


New Rules for Association Foundations from the IRS

Associations with related foundations that are considered to be “supporting organizations” under Internal Revenue Code section 509(a)(3) should pay attention to a recent decision by the Internal Revenue Service.  The IRS published the final and proposed regulations for supporting organizations on December 28, 2012 in T.D. 9605 - Payout Requirements for Type III Supporting Organizations That Are Not Functionally Integrated.


Top 5 Issues in an Employment Agreement

The top 5 issues to address in an employment agreement will differ depending on whether you are the employee or the employer and the level of the employee within the organization.


Is Your Organization Required to Pay DC Use Tax?

We have been contacted by clients who are confused by the new District of Columbia 2013 Budget Support Act and its requirement that DC employers file an annual use tax return if they are not currently filing a sales tax return.  This article is intended to answer some of the questions your organization might have about the DC use tax.


New Handbook On Intellectual Property For Nonprofits Is Published

“Intellectual property (IP), in the form of copyrights, trademarks, lists of members, attendees, exhibitors, and others are often an association’s most valuable property. And in this modern internet era, everything is electronic, so understanding and implementing the rules, best practices, and protections for IP of nonprofit organizations and associations is critical. We thought it was timely to help associations protect their IP by giving them a clear, concrete reference book to turn to,” says the co-author of the just published Intellectual Property for Nonprofit Organizations and Associations, Jefferson Glassie.

Jeff and his co-authors Eileen Johnson and Dana Lynch are attorneys with the boutique law firm, Whiteford, Taylor, and Preston, in Washington, DC.


Consulting Contract Do’s and Don’ts

When working with a consultant, always hope and plan for the best but prepare for the worst by drafting a solid consulting contract.  A good contract will clearly set forth the expectations of each party, milestones, payments and expenses, and other significant terms. The following do’s and don’ts for drafting consulting contracts will improve the likelihood that you will have a good working relationship with your consultant and that the results of the collaboration will meet your association’s needs.


IRS Work Plan for 2011

Every year the IRS publishes its work plan for the following year. The work plans contain continuing and new projects and provide insight into the issues that are top of mind for the Service.


Social Media in the Workplace

This is the second of two articles on the potential legal issues that can arise from the use and misuse of social media in the workplace. Part 1 covered the use of social media in the pre-employment setting. Part 2 covers the use of social media in employment and post-employment situations.


Corral Your Contracts

Managing your association's contracts is like herding cats. Just when you think you have it all under control, one gets away from you. What can you do to round them up into a comprehensive contract management program?


Social Media in the Workplace

This is the first of two articles on the potential legal issues that can arise from the use of social media in the workplace. The articles will cover the use of social media in pre-employment, employment and post-employment situations.


Can Your Association Benefit From Energy Tax Credits?

Condominium associations that made improvements to their common areas or common elements in 2009 should consider whether those improvements qualify for either the Non-business Energy Property Credit or the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit.

Unlike a tax deduction, a tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar credit against any federal income tax owed. For example, a $200 tax credit is deducted from the tax owed, reducing the taxpayer's liability by $200.


Consider Residential Energy Tax Credits

Homeowners who made improvements to their homes in 2009 should check to see whether those improvements qualify for either the Nonbusiness Energy Property Credit or the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit.
