Tenenbaum Law Group PLLC, Managing Partner

While most association revenue is exempt from both federal and state corporate income tax, certain income streams are subject to the unrelated business income tax (UBIT). Join Jeff Tenenbaum, Managing Partner of the Tenenbaum Law Group in Washington, DC, as we explore the context, exemptions, considerations, and strategies that successful associations use to manage and minimize UBIT while maximizing their net revenues. With new revenue streams emerging and ongoing changes to long-standing programs and activities, be sure to join other association teams as we:

  • Understand the role and context of UBIT in association revenue-planning
  • Become aware of the situations that may subject certain revenue streams to UBIT
  • Learn creative structuring and planning techniques to minimize UBIT
  • Understand how corporate sponsorships and partnerships, advertising, exhibit fees, royalties, and new revenue programs need to consider UBIT in the planning process

Whether you are CFO, COO, CEO, or a department lead, leave this webcast with a better understanding of the impact UBIT can have on your organization and how you can proactively structure programs to maximize your association’s net revenues.
