The self-dealing, conflict of interest and related party transaction rules for private foundations are among the most complex and important considerations in foundation operations and governance. Did you know that violations of the self-dealing tax rules may result in costly excise taxes and even loss of tax-exempt status? Additionally, mishandled conflicts of interest or related party transactions raise fiduciary concerns that may lead to Attorney General scrutiny or worse. Learn about these topics so that you can be better at spotting issues before they turn into legal problems.
