Final regulations: Donor disclosure rules

The U.S. Treasury Department and IRS this afternoon released for publication in the Federal Register final regulations (T.D. 9898) updating the information reporting regulations under section 6033 that are generally applicable to organizations that are exempt from tax under section 501(a). The final regulations reflect statutory amendments and remove the requirement for many noncharitable tax-exempt organizations required to file an annual Form 990 or 990-EZ information return to report donors to the IRS (i.e., on Schedule B).
