How to Get Your Tax-Exempt Status Back (ASL) - YouTube video text script

HERE’S A TIP FROM THE I-R-S.
 
HI...I’M THOMAS AND I WORK FOR THE IRS.

ARE YOU A SMALL TAX-EXEMPT GROUP?

AND HAVE YOU RECENTLY LOST YOUR TAX-EXEMPT STATUS?

MOST LIKELY, THIS HAPPENED BECAUSE OF A LAW PASSED IN 2006, THAT REQUIRES ALL TAX-EXEMPT ORGANIZATIONS TO FILE A YEARLY INFORMATION RETURN OR NOTICE WITH THE I-R-S.

AND IF YOU DIDN'T DO SO FOR THREE YEARS IN A ROW...YOUR TAX-EXEMPT STATUS IS  AUTOMATICALLY REVOKED.

NOW THE IRS UNDERSTANDS THAT, QUITE POSSIBLY, YOU WEREN’T AWARE OF YOUR NEW FILING REQUIREMENT.

OR PERHAPS YOU TRIED TO FILE BUT SENT YOUR RETURN TO US TOO LATE TO MAKE THE DEADLINE.

IF SO,...WE CAN HELP YOU GET YOUR TAX-EXEMPT STATUS BACK.

AND IN SOME CASES...YOU CAN GET IT REINSTATED RETROACTIVELY.

IN ADDITION...SMALL ORGANIZATIONS WITH 50-THOUSAND-DOLLARS OR LESS IN GROSS ANNUAL RECEIPTS LAST YEAR MAY ONLY HAVE TO PAY A 100-DOLLAR APPLICATION FEE.

THAT'S INSTEAD OF THE REGULAR 400 OR 850 DOLLAR FEE.

THIS SPECIAL…LOWER APPLICATION FEE IS ONLY AVAILABLE UNTIL THE END OF 2012.

TO GET ALL THE DETAILS...INCLUDING THE STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO GET YOUR TAX EXEMPTION STATUS BACK...GO TO W-W-W-DOT-I-R-S-DOT-GOV.
