On line 1040x Regs. On line 1040x on Good Faith Determinations. On line 1040x New Requirements for section 501(c)(3) Hospitals Under the Affordable Care Act. On line 1040x 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. On line 1040x 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. On line 1040x See, Proposed Regulations: Additional Requirements for Charitable Hospitals, REG-13026-11, 77 Fed. On line 1040x Reg. On line 1040x 38148.

On line 1040x B. On line 1040x 267, the provisions in section 11. On line 1040x 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. On line 1040x 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. On line 1040x 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. On line 1040x 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. On line 1040x Section 11. On line 1040x 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. On line 1040x Exempt Organizations Select Check. On line 1040x 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. On line 1040x 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). On line 1040x 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. On line 1040x 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). On line 1040x Have filed a Form 990-N (e-Postcard) annual electronic notice. On line 1040x In addition to searching for a particular organization, users may download a complete list of each of the three types of organizations through Exempt Organizations Select Check.
