The accurate and complete preparation of Form 990-the information return that must be filed annually by most types of tax-exempt organizations-is a key factor in maintaining public image and fundraising capabilities. The newly redesigned Form 990 was released in December 2008 with significant revisions to the initial June 2007 draft. Preparation of the new return will require tax-exempt organizations to gather extensive new information about their activities for disclosure on the new form beginning with their 2008 tax year.
In Revised Form 990: A Line-by-Line Preparation Guide, authors Jody Blazek-who with other AICPA Task Force members was instrumental in effecting changes to the original IRS draft of the form-and Amanda Adams, provide step-by-step and line-by-line analysis and preparation guidelines for nonprofit professionals and nonprofessionals alike charged with preparing and submitting the form.
