Online Courses Help Charities Understand Tax Issues
Business, Commentary

Charitable organizations have 24/7 access to online courses on Stay Exempt, an IRS website. The IRS created this site to help charities better understand tax issues that affect tax exempt organizations. It offers courses on a wide range of topics that can help these organizations obtain and maintain their tax-exempt status.

The online courses average less than 30 minutes. There is information to help guide an organization through the application process. They can also find courses that cover how to fully meet annual filing requirements. Aside from 501(c)(3)s, there are also courses geared to other 501 organizations, including veterans organizations, social clubs and fraternal organizations.

Some of the courses available include:

  • Applying for Section 501(c)(3) Status
  • Maintaining 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Status
  • Form 990 Overview Course
  • Good Governance Makes Sense for Exempt Organizations
  • Required Disclosures
  • Employment Issues

Getting and keeping tax-exempt status is important for the success of a charitable organization. Online courses on this site give directors, board members and volunteers access to tools and knowledge that will help them keep their organization’s exempt status.

Charities can find out more on the Tax Information for Charities and Other Non-Profits page on IRS.gov. For account questions, organizations can call the Tax Exempt and Government Entities toll-free line at 877-829-5500.
