IRS - EO Select Check Tool

Quick reference tool to determine if an organization:

  1. Is eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable donations,
  2. Has had its tax-exempt status automatically revoked under the law because it has not filed Form 990 series returns or notices annually as required for three consecutive years,
  3. Has filed a Form 990-N (e-Postcard) annual electronic notice. (Most small exempt organizations whose annual gross receipts are normally $50,000 or less are required to electronically submit Form 990-N, unless they choose instead to file a completed Form 990 or Form 990-EZ.)
