As Congress moves a significant overhaul of the federal tax code, education and non-profit leaders need to be asking serious, detailed questions of their elected officials -- Senators and members of the U.S. House of Representatives -- about intended and unintended impact on the non-profit sector:
Will revisions to the federal tax code encourage or discourage charitable donations?
Will the overhaul have any adverse effect on non-profit endowments?
Will these changes lessen or heighten the legal and accounting burden on non-profits?
What impact will this overhaul have on non-profit governance?
Will undergraduate and graduate students -- and the faculty who teach them -- be helped or harmed?
