IRS Releases Proposed Regulations on UBTI Calculation for Not-for-Profit Organizations

Posted 1:00 PM by
The IRS published proposed regulations on April 23, providing guidance on the changes made to calculating unrelated business taxable income (UBTI) when Internal Revenue Code Sec. 512(a)(6) was enacted as part of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017. Under this new guidance, exempt organizations would be required to determine how many unrelated trade or business activities they have and then to separately calculate the income or loss of each activity. This raised many questions about how to determine if an exempt organization had more than one unrelated trade or business and, if so, how to calculate its taxable income and tax due.
