IRS issues proposed regs on UBTI “silo” rules
Abstract: Ever since the TCJA changed the rules about UBTI, nonprofits have had questions about just how those rules apply. Now there are proposed IRS regulations that nonprofits with more than one unrelated trade or business can rely on until final regulations are published. This article highlights the regs’ critical components, including elements that have changed from earlier drafts. A sidebar explains how the newly proposed regulations allow an organization’s various investment activities to be treated as one separate unrelated business.
