Reporting Managers & Their Compensation: Form 990 Part VII-A
Identifying the "right" people who fit Trustee/Director, Officer, or Key Employee status (the key pool of "managers" the IRS disclosures, a/k/a "TDOKEs"), is essential to appropriate Form 990 reporting. Indeed, Part VII-A is the first Part of the 990's three-legged stool of high-interest, non-financial statement disclosures. The materials and the author/instructor's practical perspective readily guide preparers through the minefield of understanding of who is a current TDOKE (or a "High 5") as well as when non-current (i.e., "former") status applies.
Clear examples illustrate compensation testing for KEs, High 5s, and formers and illuminate the challenges fiscal year organizations face in their vetting which need dial back to the calendar year as to the basis of these individuals' compensation reporting.
This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
The major topics that will be covered in this course include:
- Definitions behind the three classes of legally or quasi-legally in-charge managers who are required to be disclosed as current managers relative to each Form 990's tax year
- Identifying what makes someone a "High 5"
- Drilling into the "reportable compensation" thresholds by which employees fall into consideration as either current Key Employees or High 5s, as well as former TDOKEs
- Explanation of the two "buckets" of disclosable compensation required to be reported as having been provided to all current and former managers (and High 5s) who are required to be disclosed on Part VII-A
- The two "$10,000" exceptions on Part VII-A: voiding need to disclose a related organizations' reporting (based on amounts) of "reportable compensation"; and voiding non-mandatory "other compensation" by type
After attending this presentation you will be able to...
- Readily identify the three classes of legally or quasi-legally in-charge managers who are required to be disclosed on the filing for the tax year being reported upon
- Recognize the "reportable compensation" thresholds by which employees fall into consideration as either Key Employees or High 5s (as well as "former" TDOKEs)
- Distinguish the mandatory three versus all other nontaxable remunerative benefits to be reported as "other compensation" provided to current and former TDOKEs and High 5s
