Tax reform resulted in compliance changes and challenges for many not-for-profit organizations. Some organizations are filing the Form 990-T for the first time ever, to report unrelated business income resulting from employee benefit expenses; other organizations are no longer able to net income and losses from different ancillary business activities associated with operating their exempt activities but generate net UBTI; and still others will be filing a Form 4720 paying an excise tax on endowment income or excess executive compensation or parachute payments.
