IRS Form 990 and Schedule H

In August 2008, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released final instructions for the redesigned Form 990 and 16 related schedules, including Schedule H–Hospitals, designated solely for tax-exempt hospitals. Except for the required reporting of "facility" information, Schedule H is optional for tax year 2008. However, the entire schedule is required for 2009. AHA will continue to develop resources to connect hospitals with the expertise they need to prepare their tax forms and to make the best possible use of the new data that will be collected.
