TODAY: Pittsburgh Tax Symposium

Just a reminder: today is Pittsburgh Law's symposium "The 1969 Tax Act and Charities: Fifty Years Later."

It looks like a spectacular program. And for those of us who can't make it in person, we're in luck: the symposium will be live-streamed here.

It starts at 9:15 am Eastern time. I look forward to learning more about the last half-century of tax and charities.

I watched the last presentation (the 1:30 p.m.) that covered the last 75 minutes or so of the event. I was fascinated to hear Prof. Aprill mention that the Big Four accounting firms are evenly split on whether they'll sign 990s that address the excise tax on large nonprofit executive salaries (part of TCJA).

I also wonder whether there's a brief compendium of tax cases that involve either 4941 private foundation or 4958 public charity and 501(c)(4) sanctions from the IRS. I had a lawyer ask me about this last week. He spends a lot of time doing exempt orgs. law, but was unfamiliar with 4958 and asked me whether it had ever been enforced.
