This course provides an overview of how intermediate sanctions (Internal Revenue Code § 4958) impact executive compensation arrangements. Intermediate sanctions are aimed at curbing abuse that occurs in 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations relating to overcompensation of individuals in control at these firms. This course will examine the organizations covered, the individuals involved, and the penalties associated with excess benefit. In addition, we will look at how to avoid intermediate sanctions relating to issues of reasonable compensation. (Other transactions to which intermediate sanctions may apply, including property transfers and below-market loans, are not covered in this course.)
