Alternative Investments and Foreign Reporting for Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations are often looking for ways to diversify their investment portfolios. One way to achieve diversification is to invest in alternative investments, which can include domestic and foreign limited partnerships and hedge funds. Before investing in these types of investments, it is important to understand the impact such investments might have on unrelated business income, record keeping and tax filing requirements.

Forms that may be required to be filed with the IRS related to these investments are listed below. This list is not all-inclusive, but it includes some of the more common forms.

Form 926 – Return by a U.S. Transferor of Property to a Foreign Corporation

If your organization has alternative investments, it is important to review and understand the potential filing requirements as the penalties for failing to make required filings with the IRS are significant. There are several steps you can take to minimize your compliance risk.
