IRS Releases New Select Check

Posted on Wednesday, April 25, 2012

The IRS has recently released an on-line search tool for exempt organizations called the Exempt Organization Select Check (EO Select Check).  The tool allows the public to select a tax exempt organization and check on whether an organization is eligible to receive tax deductible charitable contributions, has filed a Form 990-N (e-Postcard) or has had its tax exempt status automatically revoked due to not filing the required Form 990 for three consecutive years.

The new Select Check combines previously available information in one easy to find location.  Users can now search and sort by the following criteria.

Search for:

Both the organizations eligible to receive tax deductible charitable contributions and those that have had their tax exempt status automatically revoked will be updated monthly, while the list of organization that have filed Form 990-N will be updated weekly by the IRS.
