The IRS has revoked the tax exempt status of 275,000 nonprofit organizations. No, that’s not a typo: 275,000. So why have all these organizations lost their federal exemption? They failed to file their annual return. You see, even if you are exempt from taxes, you still have to file an annual report.
The Pension Protection Act of 2006 requires the IRS to revoke the exempt status of organizations that have not filed a return for three consecutive years. This June, the first Automatic Revocation of Exemption List was released. You can go here to view the list.
