Check your tax-exempt status

Nonprofit organizations should regularly verify their tax-exempt status.  After three years of non-tax filing the IRS will automatically revoke a nonprofits tax-exempt status. To check your nonprofit’s status, visit the IRS Tax Exempt Organization Search page and the Iowa Secretary of State’s Business Entities database.

More information can be found on the National Council of Nonprofits Revocation of Tax Exemption page, as well as the IRS’s Frequently Asked Questions and How to Have Your Tax-Exempt Status Reinstated.
