Annual Exempt Organization Information Returns

In general, exempt organizations are required to file annual returns, although exceptions apply. If an organization does not file a required return or files late, penalties may be assessed. In addition, if an organization does not file as required for three consecutive years, the law provides that it automatically loses its tax-exempt status.
