Getting Familiar With the New Form 990

(May 5, 2009) Perlman & Perlman LLP, attorneys specializing in nonprofit law, have developed for AFP members a brief describing the new IRS Form 990, its new reporting requirements and tips on completing the form.

Beyond just a change in format, the revised Form 990 shows the IRS’s increased focus on the activities of nonprofits, rather than just their financial disclosures as in the past.
