Siloing and Unrelated Business Income Activity (Jul 2019)

As if UBIT weren’t complicated enough, new rules require nonprofits to compute gains and losses from one unrelated trade or business separately from every other unrelated trade or business. So what, exactly, is a trade or business? And what does one do about UBIT that does not derive from a trade or business? Are there structuring opportunities that colleges and universities can use to get better results? This panel will discuss these and many other issues implicated by the new rules.
