At a recent meeting of the Nonprofit Academic Centers Council, the head of the IRS Tax-Exempt Educational Office presented some great resources for nonprofits. The IRS offers an amazing array of online materials on two websites: www.irs.gov/eo and http://www.stayexempt.irs.gov/.
These sites provide thousands of pages of resource materials for nonprofit organizations, churches and religious organizations. It is great if you are:
- Planning to start your own nonprofit organization;
- Trying to understand the new Form 990;
- Thinking of starting your own foundation;
- Wanting to check the status of your 501(c)3 application.
Between these two sites, there is likely an answer or a resource that will help. Check it out!
