Accountable Care Organizations and Tax-Exempt Status: Tax Planning Considerations

 

Member Briefing - December 2016

Accountable Care Organizations and Tax-Exempt Status: Tax Planning Considerations
Preston Quesenberry (Loeb & Loeb LLP, Washington, DC)

Earlier in the year, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) denied tax-exemption to an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). Should this denial give tax-exempt hospitals participating in ACOs cause for alarm? Preston Quesenberry, a former IRS official who helped draft tax guidance on ACOs, says not necessarily. As this Member Briefing explains, with careful tax planning, shared savings arrangements with private insurers should not necessarily jeopardize the tax-exemption of either the ACO itself or its tax-exempt participants.

We would like to thank the author for sharing his expertise with his colleagues.
