Editorial Reviews

Review

"….is a handy how-to reference for stewards of these charitable arms, bound as they are by the IRS Code and regulations. The book is organized with an eye to procedural questions, from organizing and applying for tax-exempt status to managing mandatory distribution, to reporting annually to the IRS, to winding up a foundation's affairs." (Journal of Accountancy, April 1st, 2009)

"It is written in a clean and direct style, and builds logically from fundamental concepts and explanations to more complex organizational and legal issues. The authors have produced a most impressive offering in this third edition. Its appearance is both timely and welcome. Highly recommended." (Estate Planning, February 2009)

Format: Hardcover
This book comes with a hefty price - I was hesitant. If you are considering the establishment of your own private foundation, this book is a must. It is fairly heavy with the legaleze, but required when considering the thorough discussions of establishing and maintaining a foundation with respect to the applicable IRS tax code. Each topic is documented and sample tax forms are illustrated. Highly recommended - needs to be a little more user friendly for the 5th star.

This is the go to publication for tax, finance, legal, or accounting professionals in Private Foundations.

You must use it in conjunction with the latest supplement (as of this writing it is the 2013 cumulative supplement:

Private Foundations: Tax Law and Compliance 2013 Cumulative Supplement (Wiley Nonprofit Law, Finance and Management Series)

But take heed - the book I received from Amazon had the correct cover but the wrong book inside. The book within the covers was about visual basic and macro programming so obviously there was some mishap at the publisher or binder. I guess "Don't judge a book by its cover" is quite true here!

I just wanted to clarify that this is a supplement to the 3rd edition of the book, not the book itself, which seems unclear from the reviews.
