This session will explore what is new for exempt organization tax, including Form 990 and 990-T updates, IRS Exempt Organization Division activity and other tax issues impacting Form 990 filers. Most notably, the session will dive into the impact of recent tax legislation on exempt organizations.

Trends in Cybersecurity Attacks & Actionable Steps to Protect Your Organization
Learn about recent attack trends affecting nonprofits through a discussion of recent examples and an overview of how and why attackers are breaking into organizations like yours. You’ll also learn what the most critical actions are for you to take to increase your organization’s cybersecurity posture and its resistance and resilience to cyberattacks.
Nonprofit Accounting Ethics Update & Lessons From a Global Pandemic
Less than a year into a new decade and we already have a changing landscape in the world of nonprofit accounting. Add in a global pandemic, and the ethics implications are substantial. This session will discuss three main concepts, in particular, the ethics challenges facing your nonprofit practice and clients during and following a global pandemic, including:
- Ethical issues associated with nonprofit audits and related services, including conflicts of interests, objectivity and public trust;
- Techniques you can discuss with your nonprofit clients to address the ethical challenges of nonprofit accounting’s heightened public scrutiny and higher standards; and
- Managing ethical issues raised by a post-COVID-19 landscape as nonprofits are learning to work with even less staff and resources, increased remote working and a heightened potential for fraud.
NOTE: This session qualifies for 1.2 credits toward the WICPA membership Ethics CPD requirement.
