Registration Webinar Registration - Member    Webinar Registration - Non-Member
Speaker: Michelle F. Tanzer, Chair of the Residential, Resort & Club Section and a Shareholder, GrayRobinson, P.A.

When is a private club not a private club? According to recent court decisions, certain clubs may be 501(c)(7) for tax purposes but yet not be truly private for legal purposes. This session will review why clubs wind up in court defending their private status, how courts are ruling, and what clubs are doing to jeopardize their private status with offerings such as non-member events and non-traditional food and packaged wine sales. Understand why private status is more than just percentage of income tax, the types of offerings to avoid, and the risks associated with certain non-traditional activities. Lastly, understand the benefits of alternative dispute resolution processes such as arbitration and mediation and other tips to help keep your club out of court.
