Did your nonprofit organization lose your tax exempt status?
What’s this all about?
In 2010, the IRS has begun revoking the tax-exempt status nonprofit organizations that failed to file a Form 990/990EZ or 990N for three years. A large number of these organizations are small nonprofits that were not required to file an annual return (because their gross revenues were $50,000 or less) and didn’t know about the new IRS requirement.
If your organization has not filed any of the 990/990EZ or 990N forms for three years, it is likely your tax exempt status was revoked.
How will I know if my organization has lost its tax-exempt status?
You may have received a letter from the IRS called a CP120A.
What if we did not receive a letter from the IRS?
You may not have not received a letter because your address has changed or you are not in the IRS exempt organizations database. This is true for thousands of tiny organizations or clubs that were not required to file a Form 1023 or 1024 application to be tax exempt.
1. You can search the IRS database here: http://www.irs.gov/Charities-&-Non-Profits/Exempt-Organizations-Select-Check
2. If you don’t find your nonprofit’s name in the database, call the IRS Customer Service for exempt organizations at 877-829-5500. Give them your name and Employer Identification Number (EIN). Call early in the morning ( 7:30 or 8:00 am ET) for shortest wait times.
OK, I think our tax exempt status was revoked! Now what?
