Tax Talk Today[R] Web cast covers election year do's and don'ts for charities, churches.

"Political Intervention: Do's and Don'ts for Charities and Churches" was the topic of Tax Talk Today's Mar. 14 Web cast. Tax Talk Today is a monthly Web cast aimed at educating tax practitioners and others on the most contemporary and complex tax issues.

The program discussed what 501(c)(3) organizations, including churches and charities, can and cannot do when a political election campaign is underway. Subject matter experts explained the rules, provided examples to highlight acceptable campaign activity and introduced new educational materials. Of particular interest to tax professionals is the discussion of the IRS' Political Activity Compliance Initiative for the election year.

Tax practitioners in need of continuing professional education are eligible to receive one credit by viewing the Web cast. Archived shows are available for one year at:
