EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2014: The Internal Revenue Service has issued a simplified application process for smaller organizations seeking tax-exempt status. Organizations with expected annual receipts of $50,000 and assets of less than $250,000 are eligible to file the three-page form. The IRS Form 1023-EZ (which must be filed electronically), instructions, and application process (Revenue Procedure 2014-40) are now available on the IRS website.
