Offset #UBIT Costs with FNP

Offset #UBIT Costs with FNP

The 2017  Tax Cuts and Jobs created new sections of the UBIT-Unrelated Business Income Tax-U.S. Internal Review Code that diverts charitable resources from community needs. The Independent Sector reports that nonprofits are now required to pay a 21% federal tax on the cost of employee transportation benefits and to calculate unrelated income streams in a way that increases tax burden.

While nonprofits may not be able to take opt-out of #UBIT, they can still take advantage of State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) exemptions with First Nonprofit (FNP) New 2019 customers saved an average of 31% on their SUI tax costs by opting out of paying quarterly SUI taxes and enrolling into one of FNP’s unemployment programs.

In addition to SUI tax savings, FNP program benefits include:

  • Fixed annual cost for budgetary certainty
  • Multiple options for different coverage levels specific to nonprofit needs
  • Knowledgeable team of unemployment specialists
  • Expert claims representation for unemployment hearings and audits
  • Access to training and services that can decrease the number of invalid unemployment claims
  • No pooling or shared risks
  • No change for employees

First Nonprofit has saved us so much money over the state’s program. We had one little glitch with the state recently and we contacted FNP immediately. FNP staff called us back immediately and moved to remedy the problem.

Life is certainly busy these days but having business partners like First Nonprofit has made some of the process hassle free. We have worked with this team for years. When we changed payroll systems, they outlined every step. I think this team is terrific and I know they get the job done! Thank you, Cruz, to all the team at FNP.

FNP has helped our agency to save thousands of dollars every year on our unemployment coverage. The service is phenomenal, and we are thankful to their team as our partner. My experience working with Marshall on the advocacy around UE for nonprofits was also a highlight as someone who teaches advocacy and lobbying for nonprofits. Really, your whole team is top shelf, so thank YOU!

Chicago Children’s Theatre has greatly benefited from our partnership with First Nonprofit, and I have always enjoyed working with the staff on our filings and any complicated questions. I would not hesitate to recommend First Nonprofit to fellow nonprofits. We’re very happy customers.

FNP is a great resource for Daniel Kids. To have a TPA that we can count on to take point on not only managing our unemployment claims, but to support and guide any protest hearing, is invaluable. All the professional support staff we have worked with have been excellent, very knowledgeable and responsive. We are grateful for the help and support, thank you.

When I first began in my position at my organization, I hadn’t had experience working with a company like FNP. The staff was so patient and helpful in helping to explain the benefits of First Nonprofit. Anytime I reach out with a question I receive a quick, clear, and thorough response. I’m so thankful that we decided to partner with FNP. Their excellence in customer service, coupled with their variety of packages frees us up to truly serve our staff and community with a peace of mind knowing that our organization is protected against unanticipated unemployment insurance expenses.
