Michael Peregrine was quoted on February 18 in the Chronicle of Philanthropy in an article regarding the recent report issued by the Internal Revenue Service regarding tax-exempt hospitals and executive compensation. Mr. Peregrine warned that charities need to take notice—lawmakers are paying particular attention to any institutions receiving government assistance. "They are saying, In this environment, with huge economic problems and deficits, tell me again why we are providing certain groups with tax exemptions," Mr. Peregrine said. "The IRS is saying, Everybody here play by the rules. And the broader charitable sector should say, All right, let me understand again what are those rules and double-check that we are complying with them," he added.
