In this episode, Kristina, Ben, and Allison welcome folks back to a new season of Voices for Good. They begin with a recap of the 2018 midterm elections and how nonprofits helped turn out record voting numbers, and then discuss all the issues Independent Sector is following in 2019 including the government shutdown and new research recently released on unrelated business income tax provisions on nonprofits.
Clarification: During the episode, Allison mentioned that he UBIT provision requiring nonprofits to report unrelated income streams separately would result in an average tax increase of $15,000 for effected organizations, including the administrative costs. That figure actually does not include administrative costs.
