Tax-exempt hospitals are on the IRS’s radar for Section 501(r) compliance, and the penalties can be steep for hospitals that’ve failed to comply—including the risk of losing their tax-exempt status.

This webcast covers the IRS selection process, what’s reviewed, and how to prepare for a possible audit. Topics we’ll discuss in detail:

  • High-level compliance challenges hospitals experience
  • IRS examination activity and audit techniques
  • Issues resulting from failure to comply, omissions, and disclosure
  • A basic checklist to help ensure a hospital is in compliance
  • How to prepare for a possible IRS examination
