Form 1023: Providing Fax Numbers and E-Mail Addresses on Applications

Why does Form 1023 request a fax number and e-mail address?

A fax number provides an alternative means for contacting an organization or its representative about a pending application. In addition, the IRS sometimes offers educational materials and programs for tax-exempt organizations, and may use e-mail to distribute this information. Providing this information on Form 1023 is optional, however.
