This session will debunk 10 common myths of private foundations. We will highlight activities you CAN do with a private foundation that most people think you CANNOT. We will also highlight a few danger areas where common sense would tell you the activity should be fine to engage in with a private foundation but is actually a violation of a Chapter 42 tax law.
