    Contains 4 Component(s), up to 1.80 CLE credit hours Includes a Live Event on 03/26/2018 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    Relatively unscathed in 1986, the last time our federal tax rules were overhauled comprehensively, tax-exempt organizations have been in the crosshairs of Congress's tax-writing committees for many years. As with any legislative vehicle, there are opportunities for winners and losers. Make no mistake: tax-exempt healthcare organizations are losers under the Act. Eliminating the estate tax's reach and doubling the standard deduction will challenge revenue-strapped organizations seeking charitable contributions. The Act toughens the Unrelated Business Income Tax—​or UBIT—​rules, introduces a new executive compensation excise tax, and eliminates tax-exempt advance refunding bonds and tax credit bonds issued after December 31, 2017. This panel of experts will help us find the silver lining, if any, in tax reform and prepare us for the future.

    Getting down to brass tacks, this webinar will focus on what you really need to know to operate your healthcare organization after tax reform. The Act will not merely affect business strategy but daily operations as healthcare providers and payers grapple with both healthcare specific and more generally applicable provisions of the Act. Eliminating the individual mandate will affect the number of insured patients being seen by providers, and thus provider cash flow. The Act's changes will affect all employees and individuals, impacting employee compensation and business related expenses, and thus the ability to recruit new employees (including physicians) and structure fringe benefit programs. Carefully crafted compensation structures, as well as payroll and benefit systems, will have to be expeditiously reviewed and changed, even before interpretive guidance issued. Our panelists will share how they are navigating this uncertainty (i.e., what is a "trade or business" under the new UBIT rules?) and what to prepare for next.
