Filing 2011 taxes online 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. Filing 2011 taxes online 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. Filing 2011 taxes online 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. Filing 2011 taxes online 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. Filing 2011 taxes online Section 11. Filing 2011 taxes online 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.
