The Impact of #UBIT on Nonprofits

The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act created two new sections of the tax code that will divert charitable resources from community needs.

21%:

Nonprofits are now required to pay 21% federal tax on the cost of employee transportation benefits and to calculate unrelated income streams in a way that increases tax burden.

$12,000:

$12,000 will be diverted annually from each nonprofit’s mission to pay for new tax on transportation benefits

$15,000:

$15,000 will be diverted annually from each nonprofit’s mission to report unrelated income streams separately.

Offset the cost of #UBIT with FNP!

While your organization may not be able to take opt-out of #UBIT, you can still take advantage of State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) exemptions with FNP.

31%:

New 2019 FNP customers saved an average of 31% on their SUI tax costs.

New York Council of Nonprofits, Albany, NY

We were introduced to First Nonprofit through another housing authority. In our analysis and comparison to what we were paying the State, our first year savings was $5,800 plus. We have been with them since the end of 2008 and I am glad we have been. I consider them an arm of our HR department.

Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.

Throughout our membership in the Unemployment Savings Program, First Nonprofit understood our demands, community dynamics, and the importance of seamless services; that allowed us to serve our constituents better.
