From the IRS:

LA/MS-2011-05

NEW ORLEANS – The Internal Revenue Service will hold three one-day workshops in New Orleans, Louisiana on March 1, 2, and 3 to help small and mid-sized tax-exempt organizations along the Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf Coast comply with their tax obligations and maintain their tax-exempt status. The workshops are designed for board members, officers, volunteers and staff of these organizations and for the tax preparers and stakeholders who work with them.

IRS revenue agents and tax law specialists, experienced with tax-exempt organizations, will lead the workshops which will cover the “nuts and bolts” of tax compliance for exempt organizations. Workshop topics include an in-depth discussion of activities that can jeopardize 501(c)(3) status, unrelated business income, gaming and employment issues. Particular emphasis will be given to explaining the revised Form 990 and 990-EZ annual information returns that tax-exempt organizations submit to the IRS.

The workshops will be held at the Doubletree Hotel New Orleans Airport, 2150 Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Kenner, LA. The workshop cost is $45 per person and includes a handbook and relevant IRS forms and publications.

Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, visit IRS.gov. Information and registration is also available by calling Events by Design, Inc, IRS’s registration services provider, at 800-521-3980 or 703-579-1496.
