Nonprofit Quarterly published my article “The Case of the Disappearing Exempt Organizations Link on IRS.gov” on Wednesday, August 24, 2016.
It is a short article -well not quite as short as this blog. My article was prompted by a 2016 IRS ACT Exempt Organization subcommittee’s recommendation – a report which is definitely much longer than either my article or this blog. (Skip to page 89 if you want to read all of the 2016 EO subcommittee’s recommendations.) For those who may recall, I served on the ACT committee from 2011-14.
By Thursday morning, August 25, 2016, the IRS had posted an “Exempt Orgs” tab on IRS.gov.
This direct link will make it easier, especially for small and mid-sized, nonprofits to access directly the IRS Exempt Organizations home page and the many resources which the EO division creates to provide them with much needed and used information.
Thank you to IRS Commissioner Koskinen and the IRS TEGE, EO, and IT personnel who listened and responded positively.
