The New Proposed Regulations on DAFs: Taxable Distributions and the Penalty Tax

December 18, 2023 Podcast
EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource

Welcome to EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. In today's episode, the final episode on the new DAF regulations, we take a close look at the new Proposed Regulations 53.4966-2 and -5, which cover the definition of taxable distributions from donor advised funds and the onerous penalty taxes that can apply. When a fund is a DAF, and a distribution is a taxable distribution, significant penalties apply to the sponsoring organization and the donor advisor or fund advisor. This episode discusses the new guidance on what distributions are taxable and the amount of the penalty taxes imposed.
