EO Reporting Requirements: Effect of Extended Due Date on Revocation of Exempt Status for Non-Filing

Will my organization’s exempt status be revoked if I filed a request to extend the due date for filing my annual information return?

No. As long as you filed Form 8868 by your organization's filing due date, then file as required by the extended due date, the organization’s exempt status will not be automatically revoked during the extension period.  Note that a Form 8868 cannot be filed to extend the due date of a Form 990-N.
