501c3 Application using Form 1023/1023-EZ


I offer a full service Application for 501c3 Tax exempt Status using Form 1023 or 1023-EZ.

Is my nonprofit organization eligible to use the shorter Form 1023-EZ?

This service includes:

    • Determine your eligibility for IRS Form 1023-EZ or 1023
    • Examine your organizing documents for compliance with IRS requirements for 501c3 status.
    • Explain the important parts of the Form 1023-EZ and be with you over the phone while you input the information or prepare the full length Form 1023.
    • Research and inform you of any necessary forms your state requires from nonprofit organizations.


For the Form 1023-EZ: $400* plus IRS fee of $275 (paid to IRS).

For the Form 1023: $850* plus IRS fee of $600 (paid to IRS).

(*Additional fees for bookkeeping and preparing or amending the Articles of Incorporation may be added.)

While the 1023-EZ form is much simpler than the full Form 1023, it is very important that you determine if you are eligible to use the form. That’s where my experience will help you.


Today we received a letter from the IRS stating that we have been granted 501c3 status!!! Wooohoooo!!! Thanks for all of your help. We never would have had the confidence to pursue this further if you hadn’t been so encouraging. Doing a happy dance…-Shawna Amick, SHINE, TX


Please contact me to request an engagement letter and questionnaire for the Form 1023 or 1023-EZ application. We will arrange a mutually agreeable time for a phone consultation.
