Automatic Revocation of Exemption List
The IRS publishes a list of organizations that have had their federal tax-exempt status automatically revoked for failing to file an annual information return or notice with the IRS for three consecutive years (Auto-Revocation List). The Auto-Revocation List may be viewed and searched on Exempt Organizations Select Check (EO Select Check). The Auto-Revocation List provides the organization's name, employer identification number (EIN), exemption type, last known address, effective date of revocation and the date the organization's name was posted on IRS.gov. Users can also download the Auto-Revocation List using EO Select Check.
Notification of Auto Revocation
In March 2013, EO will begin providing more current information about automatic revocations by including organizations on the Automatic Revocation List within a month of their effective date of revocation.
Previously, organizations did not appear on the List until six months after revocation. Because of this change, the number of organizations added to the List in March 2013 will appear higher than in other months because it includes a catch-up period of about seven months.
Updated data posting date: 12-9-2013
Search Tips for Exempt Organizations Select Check
Because the list is an official IRS record of organizations that lost their exempt status for failing to file for three consecutive years, an organization whose exempt status is reinstated remains on the list. If, however, you think your organization was erroneously listed as revoked, see our frequently asked questions.
The spreadsheets and Acrobat files previously provided have been replaced by EO Select Check. Use EO Select Check to search for automatically revoked organizations by state.
