For very small organizations, applying for tax-exempt status has been a daunting task, between the lengthy forms and requirements, to the waiting period for the all-important determination. But that changed recently with the unveiling of IRS’s new Form 1023-EZ. Only 2 ½ pages long, the new application is a streamlined approach to tax-exempt status; however, organizations must meet certain criteria to use it.
The new 1023-EZ, as well as the longer original 1023, will be discussed at the next program presented on Tuesday, December 2 at 6:00 pm, by the Legal Center for Nonprofits at its office inside the Inter-Church Council House, 412 County Street, New Bedford. Admission is $10, and preregistration is recommended.
