Automatic Revocation of Exemption for Non-Filing: Overview

What is automatic revocation?

Automatic revocation occurs when an exempt organization that is required to file an annual return (e.g., Form 990, 990-EZ or 990-PF) or submit an annual electronic notice (Form 990-N, or e-Postcard) does not do so for three consecutive years. Under the law, the organization's federal tax-exempt status is automatically revoked.
