Tax-exempt organizations are generally aware that they may be subject to the unrelated business income tax (UBIT) on income derived from certain types of activities, despite being recognized by the IRS as organizations that are otherwise exempt from income tax under Section 501(c)(3) or under other provisions of U.S. Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c). Whether the UBIT applies in a particular instance or to a particular activity, however, may not always be clear.
