Due to concerns about the possible exploitation of nonprofit status for the benefit of individuals, the IRS added new disclosures in 2005 and 2008 asking nonprofit organizations to disclose the existence of family and business relationships among board members. In 2008, the disclosures were expanded to identify the nature of these relationships among board members.
