Spotlight on Compliance

The IRS sets requirements for nonprofit compensation.  Nonprofits can lose their 501(c)3 status.  Board members or others can be held personally responsible.  You should:

  • Pay "reasonable compensation" (1)

  • Use "appropriate data" to set compensation (2)

  • Follow a responsible decision making process
