The unrelated business income tax (UBIT) on income earned from both operating businesses and investment activities applies to all organizations exempt from tax under Internal Revenue Code Sec. 501(c), as well as public colleges and universities and qualified and nonqualified retirement plans.

Join us and learn about the tax; its application to particular types of organizations and entities; and modifications, exclusions, exceptions and deductible expenses. We'll also discuss the specific deduction and special rules for debt financed income, corporate sponsorships and periodicals, as well as receive tips for clients regarding structuring revenue generating activities with respect to both entity and relationship to mission.

We'll also dive into investment activities, which is increasingly resulting in more organizations having unrelated business taxable income for both federal and state purposes and additional filings related to foreign investments.
