Webcast Transcript: Taxing times

About the Webinar

Not-for-profit hospitals' exemptions from local, state and federal taxes are under scrutiny like never before. Revenue-starved jurisdictions are looking to squeeze healthcare providers for cash at the same time the feds are stepping up requirements for hospitals to maintain their status as public charities. One recent court ruling found a not-for-profit hospital operating more like a for-profit enterprise, resulting in the loss of the hospital's exemption. Hospital executives have long fretted over the end of tax exemptions, but some are asking whether long-term changes are in store and what they can do to confront these issues head-on.

Key Takeaways

Attend this webcast and learn:
  • Why some observers think the current threats are more serious than in years past.
  • How can a hospital fight, in public and behind closed doors, to keep its exemption.
  • When a hospital should agree to make payments in lieu of taxes.
