IRS New Form For Small Non-Profit Applications Has Eliminated Backlog

BNA Daily Report for Executives [subscription required] reported on Feb. 27 that an IRS official recently told a conference that the IRS new streamlined Form 1023-EZ for small entities has been successful in getting rid of the backlog of 75,000 applications for tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3). The IRS has approved 18,169 of the 20,123 applications for tax exempt status it has received in the last six months. (Churches and other houses of worship, and church associations, do not need to file in order to obtain exemptions.)
