IRS representatives to visit UMSL to discuss regulations

Nonprofit Management and Leadership Program at UMSL

The Nonprofit Management & Leadership Program at the University of Missouri–St. Louis will present the Internal Revenue Service Workshop for 501(c)(3) Small- & Medium-Sized Organizations on April 30 at the J.C. Penney Building/Conference Center on UMSL’s North Campus. For one day only, tax-exempt organizations, tax and legal professionals, and those who work and volunteer at 501(c)(3) organizations can learn about important IRS regulations straight from IRS tax representatives.

“The Value of your 501(c)(3) tax exempt status should not be underestimated,” said Dan Sise, instructor and community engagement manager for UMSL’s NPML Program. “This is an important financial benefit with both tangible and intangible value for your organization, and your mission.”

IRS rules and regulations are stringent and ever-changing. Participants of this workshop will hear directly from the IRS about the benefits and responsibilities under 501(c)(3) and actions that may jeopardize the exempt status of an organization. Additional topics include: Unrelated Business Income, Employment Issues, Form 990 Series, and Required Disclosures.

The workshop will include a lunch presentation by Bob Carlson, assistant attorney general in the Missouri Attorney General’s Office.

“Given how hard you work, and how much effort went into obtaining and maintaining your tax-exempt status, you should make sure you are armed with the best information and resources possible to help you keep your 501(c)(3) designation,” Sise said. “This workshop, presented by IRS staff, is the most direct source of information and training you can get when it comes to understanding what the IRS expects from 501(c)(3) organizations, and how to keep your tax-exempt status in place.”

The registration fee for the IRS Workshop is $55. Walk-in registrations are accepted for a fee of $70 at the door. For more information, and to register, visit or call 314-516-5655.
