1. How do I verify my organization has filed all required tax forms?

IRS Business and Specialty Tax line – (800) 829-4933
IRS Excise Tax and Form 2290 line – (866) 699-4096

3. Will an approved extension for filing a tax return be accepted as being in compliance?

Yes. An approved extension for filing a tax return is acceptable for compliance.
