Quick Tip for Nonprofits—IRS Determination Letters Now Available Online

In a relatively recent development in the nonprofit world, you can now download copies of original IRS Determination Letters (issued January 1, 2014 and later) using the IRS on-line search tool Tax Exempt Organization Search (TEOS).  Over the past few years, I have had several nonprofit clients report that they had not received their IRS Determination Letters in the mail but were able to locate and download copies through TEOS.  The Form 1023 review process can take anywhere from 6-12 months, so if you are working with a newly formed nonprofit organization that has filed its Form 1023 application for IRS recognition of exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) and is eagerly awaiting a response, consider checking to see if the IRS Determination Letter has been posted on the TEOS platform.  You might be pleasantly surprised!
