regulations modify standards for making a good faith determination that a foreign organization is a charitable organization, grants to which may be qualifying distributions and not taxable expenditures. 1040 form The proposed regulations identify a broader class of tax practitioners upon whose written advice a private foundation may base a “good faith determination. 1040 form ” See, Proposed Regulations: Reliance Standards for Making Good Faith Determinations, REG-134974-12, 2012-47 I. 1040 form R. 1040 form B. 1040 form 553. 1040 form Prop. 1040 form Regs. 1040 form on Good Faith Determinations. 1040 form New Requirements for section 501(c)(3) Hospitals Under the Affordable Care Act. 1040 form The Affordable Care Act (ACA), enacted March 23, 2010, added new requirements that hospital organizations must satisfy in order to be described in section 501(c)(3), as well as new reporting requirements and excise taxes. 1040 form On June 22, 2012, the Service issued a notice of proposed rulemaking that addresses the new requirements enacted by the ACA applicable to section 501(c)(3) hospital organizations. 1040 form See, Proposed Regulations: Additional Requirements for Charitable Hospitals, REG-13026-11, 77 Fed. 1040 form Reg. 1040 form 38148. 1040 form On April 3, 2013, the Service issued proposed regulations on the ACA's community health needs assessment (CHNA) requirements. 1040 form The proposed regulations also discuss the related reporting and excise tax requirements for charitable hospitals and the consequences for failure to satisfy the section 501(r) requirements. 1040 form See, Proposed Regulations: Community Health Needs Assessments for Charitable Hospitals, REG-106499-12, 78 Fed. 1040 form Reg. 1040 form 20,523. 1040 form Timing of when an

section 11. 1040 form 01 regarding the effect of determination letters or rulings recognizing exempt status of organizations described in section 501(c), other than sections 501(c)(3), (9), (17), and (29), have been revised. 1040 form Prior to this year, and back to 1962, when such organizations applied for recognition, the IRS would usually recognize the organizations as tax exempt from the date of formation, no matter how long the interval between the date of formation and the date of application. 1040 form In addition to the practical difficulties of ascertaining an organization's purposes and activities for this period, such recognition is now potentially inconsistent with the provisions of section 6033(j), which automatically revokes the exempt status of an organization that fails to file required Form 990 series returns or notices for three consecutive years. 1040 form The new procedure adopts a practice similar to the rule for section 501(c)(3) organizations for these organizations, generally permitting recognition from the date of formation if the organization has: always met the requirements for exemption, has applied within 27 months from the end of the month in which it was organized, and has not failed to file required Form 990 series returns or notices for three consecutive years. 1040 form Section 11. 1040 form 01(3) notes: an organization that otherwise meets the requirements for tax-exempt status and the issuance of a determination letter or ruling that does not meet the requirements for recognition from date of formation will generally be recognized from the postmark date of its application. 1040 form Exempt Organizations Select Check. 1040 form The IRS has developed an on-line search tool, Exempt Organizations Select Check, that allows users to select an exempt organization and check certain information about its federal tax status and filings. 1040 form It consolidates three former search sites into one, providing expanded search capability and a more efficient way to search for organizations that: Are eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions (Publication 78 data). 1040 form Users may rely on this list in determining deductibility of contributions, just as they did when Publication 78 was a separate electronic publication rather than part of Select Check. 1040 form Have had their tax-exempt status automatically revoked under the law because they have not filed Form 990 series returns or notices annually as required for three consecutive years (Auto-Revocation List). 1040 form Have filed

through Exempt Organizations Select Check. 1040 form See also Revenue Procedure 2011-33, 2011-25 I. 1040 form R. 1040 form B. 1040 form 887. 1040 form Future developments. 1040 form . 1040 form The
