Review of nonprofit filings increased 360% from FY ’04 to FY ’09. The IRS continues revoking the tax-exempt status of thousands of nonprofits.
FY 2012 WORK PLAN
Auto-Revocation for Non-Filers
The Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA) required that almost all tax-exempt organizations file an annual return or notice with the IRS every year, and provided that any organization that does not file a required return or notice for three consecutive years automatically loses its tax-exempt status.
On June 8, 2011, the IRS published the first list of revoked organizations. The list is updated monthly as organizations with different fiscal year-ends fail to file for a third consecutive year.
The IRS redesigned the Form 990 to promote transparency and compliance. The new form, which was effective in tax year 2008, has provided EO with a wealth of information on exempt organizations. EO has used this information to develop risk models to assess the likelihood of noncompliance by organizations, allowing more effective use of examination resources.
