  • Does My Organization Have Unrelated Business Taxable Income?

    Robert Lyons, CPA, MST
    Aug 1, 2016

    Unrelated business taxable income (UBTI) is a relatively simple concept: It represents activities conducted by an organization that are both (1) commercial and (2) not in furtherance of the organization’s exempt purpose. UBTI is based on the idea that when a nonprofit participates in commercial activities or exploits its exempt purpose, it would be competing at an unfair advantage with for-profit entities because, as a nonprofit, it generally does not pay taxes on its income.

  • The Supreme Court Decided on Colorado Sales Tax—Or Did It?

    Brian Gordon, CPA
    Jul 1, 2015
    In 2010, Colorado came up with a unique way to collect use tax on sales from remote sellers outside that state: because states cannot require out-of-state retailers to collect sales tax for them, Colorado passed a law requiring out-of-state sellers to report, to their customers and to the state, the amount of purchases made that is subject to use tax.
