Welcome to EO Radio Show—Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. In this episode, Cynthia Rowland highlights some tax schemes designed to exploit both taxpayers and the Treasury. The Internal Revenue Service just wrapped up the 2024 Dirty Dozen campaign with a warning to taxpayers about several schemes, many of which purport to benefit charitable purposes.

Fraudulent schemes threatening taxpayers can take different forms, including exploitative agreements related to bogus art donations and improper application of the rules allowing charitable planning using charitable remainder trusts, as well as outright fraudulent charitable solicitations for scammers posing as charities.

Today’s episode brings you the IRS warnings on these topics and some advice on spotting the scams.
