IRS Releases 2011 Form 990

The Internal Revenue Service recently released the 2011 version of the Form 990 for tax-exempt organizations, and Schedule H — which is filed by hospitals — has several major changes, according to a McGuireWoods news release.

Changes within the 2011 Schedule H include the following:

•    Hospital and health systems must list each of its hospital and non-hospital healthcare facilities, including those operated indirectly through a disregarded entity or a joint venture.

•    All hospital organizations must fill out the questions in Part V that deal with the organization's financial assistance policy, billing and collections policy, emergency care policy and policy regarding individuals eligible for financial assistance.

•    Community health needs assessment questions in Part V line 1-7 are optional for any tax year beginning before March 24, 2012.

Tax-exempt hospitals that are on a calendar-year taxable year must submit their Form 990 by May 15, 2012. More information on the Form 990 can be found here.
