Schedule F of the Form 990 has a list of trigger questions related to potential foreign filing an exempt organization may need to file with the Form 990 or Form 990-T, however, there are not clear instructions for when the filings will apply. Furthermore, many of the US international tax provisions do not contemplate exempt organizations and thus reviewing the foreign filing instructions can be difficult to understand when a filing is needed. This session is meant to help organizations and practitioners understand when US filings are required. In addition, the session will cover the TCJA 2017 and how GILTI and the changes in the controlled foreign corporation may affect the reporting obligations of organizations with foreign investments (including foreign program entities).
