April 20, 2018

We also discuss babies in the Senate, changes in Congress, and IRS bills. Guests include IS’ Carolyn Mollen and League of American Orchestras’ Heather Noonan, who help us explain how the tax bill passed in December had provisions that increase taxes on nonprofits, hindering their ability to deliver on their missions. Hear what you can do about it.
