Effective July 1, 2014, the IRS adopted Form 1023-EZ, Streamlined Application for Recognition of Exemption Under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  For organizations that are eligible to use the new Form 1023-EZ can complete a 2 page online application form, pay a $275 filing fee and obtain an IRS determination letter that the organization is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization within two to four weeks.  To learn more about this new application process, the Form 1023EZ, the eligibility requirements and potential negative consequences of using the streamlined form instead of the lengthy and more complex IRS Form 1023, read my article called “IRS Form 1023-EZ.”  For the complete list of disqualifications see the “IRS Form 1023-EZ Eligibility Worksheet.”
