Tax and Finance

 
Back to Practice Groups

Welcome to the Tax and Finance Practice Group (Tax PG). We are here to help you master the legal, financial, tax, and operational issues that you need to know to meet your clients' needs.

Here are the top five things you can do to make the most of your membership in the Tax PG:

  1.  Register for a webinar or listen to an archived webinar: Web-based seminars address the legal, financial, and operational issues raised in connection with tax-related issues and their impact on hospitals and health systems.  Click here to access a list of upcoming and past webinars sponsored by the Tax PG.
  2. Join the Tax Issues Community: Discussion includes IRS interpretive guidance, regulatory and legislative developments, attorney general opinions, agency reports, court decisions, and experiences on the audit trail. To join the Community, visit your "myAHLA" profile at www.healthlawyers.org/myahla, enter your login information, click the blue button to customize your "Email and List Preferences," and click "Save." 
  3. Sign up for an Affinity Group: Available at no additional fee, Affinity Groups facilitate networking and provide educational opportunities for members who share similar professional interests. If you did not select an Affinity Group when you joined AHLA, you can still do so. Simply complete and return this enrollment form or call AHLA's Member Service Center at (202) 833-1100, prompt #2. Tax PG members can enroll in the following Affinity Groups:
    • Tax-Exempt Finance Affinity Group: Addresses and advances the federal tax and related issues associated with issuance of tax-exempt bonds and educates tax lawyers regarding the unique issues associated with tax-exempt bond financing.
    • Tax In-House Affinity Group: Addresses the unique needs of in-house tax professionals.
  4.  Check out the Tax PG Topical Library: This is where you can access the most relevant and recent AHLA publications and resources related to your practice area. It's the hub for AHLA content on AMCTH.
  5. Plan to attend Tax Issues for Health Care Organizations (held each Fall in the Washington, DC area): This program focuses on  recent tax law developments, featuring speakers from the Internal Revenue Service and Department of the Treasury.  Panelists typically discuss tax exemption standards, IRS enforcement and audit initiatives, executive compensation, joint ventures, tax-exempt bonds and more.

In addition, here are other benefits available to you through the Tax PG:

  • Email Alerts, Executive Summaries, and Member Briefings: Timely alerts are delivered directly to your inbox—when a new law, regulation, or decision is published, we do the initial legwork and summarize it for you.
  • Great Opportunities for Involvement: The Tax PG leadership welcomes and encourages members to become active participants by writing, speaking, tweeting, serving as a mentor, and taking on other leadership roles. Visit www.healthlawyers.org/volunteer to view available volunteer opportunities.
  • Task Forces: For those health law topics that cross over several Practice Groups, AHLA has established Task Forces that produce collaborative, substantive resources for the benefit of the sponsoring Practice Groups' members. Tax PG members are automatically enrolled in

Providing tax and finance advice to hospitals and health systems requires you to understand the many complex legal issues raised by your clients' business operations. We hope that your active participation in the Tax PG will help you meet all of your clients' needs.

  • Accountable Care Organization Task Force
    The mission of the ACO Task Force is to provide members with a wide array of information relating to accountable care organizations, integrated care models, and other initiatives designed to improve quality and lower costs, for better population health. The ACO Task Force analyzes the impact and trajectory of ACO and other integrated care developments nationwide, including commercial ACOs, Medicaid ACOs, and the Medicare ACO programs.

    The mission of the ACO Task Force includes informing members of any new or updated regulations, waivers, and guidance relating to the main federal ACO programs, including the Medicare Shared Savings Program and the Pioneer ACO program, as well as to provide information on a broader array of issues integral to ACOs, integrated care systems, population health, and payment models.

    The ACO Task Force provides webinars, written material, and sponsored in-person programming pertaining to the relationship between ACOs and population health, as well as other topics germane to ACO formation and development. Since the ACO Task Force mission is so broad, it often partners with other AHLA Practice Groups to provide deeper insight into the unique legal and policy considerations for ACOs.
