Portland

About this event

This event description is for Portland. This workshop will also be offered in Bend (January 30), Eugene (January 14), and Medford (January 28).

Presenters

Nancy Young, Senior Manager

Rebecca Griffith, Tax Manager

Wendy Campos, Tax Partner

The IRS continues to stress the importance of transparency and accountability to the public as an obligation of tax exempt organizations. Join NAO and Moss Adams to explore two key risk areas.

Fraud: The Other Fringe Benefit

Do you know that organizations lose 5% of every dollar to fraud schemes in one form or another? Would you or your financial department know the opportunity points or fraud indicators? While the chances of fraud occurring in your organization —externally or employee perpetrated—may seem unlikely, it is a major economic obstacle costing billions each year in lost revenue and misappropriated assets, according to the US Department of Commerce. Join us for a better understanding of:

  • The fraud environment
  • Various fraud schemes
  • Preventive, detective, and corrective controls
  • Characteristics of a fraudster

Winter Tax Update

This tax update will cover updates to the Form 990 and instructions changes for 2013. The complexity of the Form 990 continues to evolve as we settle in to the redesigned forms. This session will focus on the changes in the form and instructions for 2013 and some of the more complex issues and questions surrounding the reporting of partnership interests, compensation, transactions with “interested persons,” and identifying and reporting related organizations.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is designed for financial managers, controllers, CFOs, executive directors, Board members, and program managers.
