New Online Form 1023-EZ Makes Applying for Recognition of 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Status Easier

December 18, 2014
Shouka Rezvani, the chair of Tonkon Torp's Nonprofit & Tax Exempt Entities group, had an article published in the Fall 2014 issue of the Oregon State Bar's Nonprofit Organizations Law Section Newsletter. In her article, Shouka reviews the new Form 1023-EZ, introduced by the Internal Revenue Service on July 1, 2014. The new form is three pages long, as compared with the regular 26-page version, and the Service estimates it will take 14 hours to complete, as compared with the estimated 101 hours required for the regular Form 1023.
