Becoming Tax Exempt

Becoming Tax Exempt

Question:  How does an organization become tax-exempt?

Answer:  To be recognized as exempt from federal income taxation, most organizations are required to apply for recognition of exemption. For section 501(c)(3) organizations, the law provides only limited exceptions to this requirement. Applying for recognition of exemption results in formal IRS recognition of an organization’s status, and may be preferable for that reason.
