As I had previously blogged about here, Congress imposed new notice and reporting requirements on new 501(c)(4) organizations as a part of the PATH Act that was passed on December 18, 2016. Yesterday, the IRS released Notice 2016-9, giving us an update on this new requirement.

On Friday, December 18th, Congress passed and the President signed the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (the “Path Act”). The Path Act contained multiple provisions of interest to the nonprofit and tax exempt community, but probably of greatest interest, is a new requirement being imposed on certain 501(c)(4) organizations beginning in 2016.

In one of my last blog posts, I gave a brief mention of the IRS’ plans to make machine readable 990s available in the near future. IRS speakers are now regularly saying at the national conferences that this will begin to happen on e-filed returns as early as January/February next year. For those that still don’t believe that it is important that a 990 be accurate and well-prepared, let this be your final warning.
