Author: James Fishman;Stephen Schwarz;Lloyd Mayer
This casebook has been adapted from the authors' pioneering and widely used casebook, Nonprofit Organizations: Cases and Materials. Topics covered include organizational and operational requirements for tax-exempt status for charitable and mutual benefit organizations, private foundations, the unrelated business income tax, and the charitable contributions deduction. An introductory chapter provides valuable perspective and a concise overview of the nontax considerations affecting choice of legal form for a nonprofit organization. The Fourth Edition incorporates all important new legislative, judicial and administrative developments, including final regulations on the public charity support tests and supporting organizations; proposed regulations on the heightened exemption requirements for nonprofit hospitals and program-related investments; and the ongoing controversy over the use of nonprofit organizations for political campaign activity. Perfect for instructors seeking more intensive tax-focused coverage, this spin-off edition has been carefully customized for use in 2 or 3-unit J.D. and LL.M courses on taxation of the nonprofit sector. Each chapter contains a rich but manageable mix of materials, including well-edited cases, major rulings, policy excerpts, lively notes and questions, skillfully designed problems that raise policy, technical and planning issues, and bibliographic references.
