Unrelated business income tax or UBIT is a corporate rate tax imposed on the unrelated business income generated by tax-exempt organizations.
Non-profits and other tax-exempt organizations in Illinois can benefit from federal and state tax exemptions related to the organization’s charitable, educational or other mission. In order for organizations to benefit from these exemptions, they must be compliant with state and federal tax laws in order to avoid penalties and keep their tax-exempt status.
In order for activity to be labeled as “unrelated business” it meets the following requirements:
- The activity is a trade or business,
- The activity is frequent and consistent, and
- The activity is not substantially related to the exempt purpose of the organization
- To determine whether the activity is related, you must determine the size and extend of the activities involved. In addition, you must also determine the nature and extent of the exempt function that the activity intends to serve.
- To determine whether the activity is related, you must determine the size and extend of the activities involved; and the nature and extent of the exempt function that the activity intends to serve.
