Eve has practiced law since 1985, operating for 15 years the Tax Exempt Law Office of Eve Rose Borenstein, LLC until that firm merged in 2004 into the then-created Borenstein and McVeigh Law Office (www.BAMlawoffice.com). Her practice in both firms has been dedicated to the unique tax and regulatory rules applied by the IRS and state agencies to "tax-exempt" organizations. Officed in Minneapolis, Eve consults with both CPAs and individual non-profits nation-wide; through 2012 she had represented more than 950 tax-exempt organizations before the IRS. A substantial portion of her clientele are organizations with gross revenues of less than $1,000,000 per year, but Eve also represents many medium and large organizations, typically on planning or IRS audits and correspondence.
For the past two decades, Eve has been an active member of the American Bar Association's Tax Section Committee on Exempt Organizations, working from that platform, as well as with various other professional groups and committees (including those of the AICPA) to provide feedback to the IRS on exempt organization forms and procedures. Since 1990, she has authored and instructed four exempt organization CPE courses offered by State CPA societies (two on the Form 990 and two on EO tax mandates), and is the co-author of the AICPA's "Comprehensive Form 990" course debuting spring 2013. Informed by her clients' experience in IRS examinations, and by her work with the CPA community on the Form 990's preparation, she is widely recognized as the authoritative instructor on that Form. In addition to teaching to the professional community serving non-profits, she participates in many training programs serving non-profits directly. Her speaking and teaching have always comprised a significant portion of her work in service to her commitment to see the sector "do it right the first time".
Eve is a native of New Jersey and a University of Rhode Island graduate who loves her adopted home-state, Minnesota. She earned her law degree from the University of Minnesota in 1985, and then worked in the Tax Department of one of the original Big 8 accounting firms in Minneapolis before embarking on her service to tax-exempt organizations in 1988. She is the proud parent of two young adults and resides in Minneapolis and Duluth with her life partner.
