Workshop leader and speaker at annual Nonprofit Governance Symposium at the University of San Diego. This presentation examined the welfare exemption requirements and application process as well as the imposition of sales and use tax on nonprofit organizations in California. The welfare exemption process can be a trap for the unwary as many nonprofits that were able to obtain exemption under 501(c)(3) find they do not meet the strict requirements set forth by the Board of Equalization.
