The Law of Tax-Exempt Healthcare Organizations

Front Cover
A total resource for administrators of tax-exempt healthcare organizations

Over half of all hospitals operate under tax-exempt status. But while healthcare organizations are governed by only some of the general laws for tax-exempt organizations, they face a wide range of other stringent and complex regulations. As such, healthcare administrators cannot make organizational or operational decisions without considering the tax law ramifications. Keeping up with both health law and tax-exempt law is a daunting prospect, but one administrators must tackle. This book provides a comprehensive, one-volume source of detailed information on federal, state, and local laws covering tax-exempt healthcare organizations. It tackles complex legal issues in a practical, down-to-earth manner by providing plain-English explanations and the appropriate legal citations for further research. Written by leading experts in the fields of healthcare and nonprofit law, this comprehensive and vital resource has been completely revised and updated to present a clear view of complicated legal and tax issues. It provides detailed documentation and citations, including references to regulations, rulings, cases, and tax literature. An exhaustive index allows for quick and easy reference and annual supplements keep the reader apprised of the latest developments affecting tax-exempt healthcare organizations.
