The article talks about the reporting rules for tax-exempt organizations that will be released by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service in the middle of June 2007. The rules may require not-for-profit hospitals to quantify and disclose how much they are spending on charity care and other community benefits in exchange for their tax exemptions. The agency will release on its Web site proposed changes to the form called the 990. The redesigned form could be in use by as early as 2008.
