Senate Finance Committee Questions IRS on Hospital Not-for-Profit Status

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and committee member Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to the acting Internal Revenue Services (IRS) Commissioner asking the agency about its oversight of not-for-profit hospitals.

In the letter, the senators question how the IRS reviews charitable giving information submitted by hospitals. The senators also inquire about the IRS’ guidance to hospitals related to the obligation to provide community benefits as a part of a hospital’s tax-exempt status.
