Overview of Organizations Described in Section 501(c)(4) How To Request Recognition of Tax-Exempt Status Under Section 501(c)(4) If you aren’t organized for profit and will be operated primarily to promote social welfare to benefit the community, you may qualify for exemption under section 501(c)(4). A local association of employees may qualify for exemption under section 501(c)(4) if (1) membership is limited to the employees of a designated person or persons in a particular municipality, and (2) the net earnings of the association are devoted exclusively to charitable, educational, or recreational purposes. Notice requirement. Every new section 501(c)(4) organization must use Form 8976, Notice of Intent to Operate Under Section 501(c)(4), to provide notice to the Internal Revenue Service. You must file Form 8976 within 60 days of formation. Providing notice on Form 8976 is not a determination that the IRS recognizes you as exempt under section 501(c)(4). Optional application for recognition of exemption. You may (but are not required to) file Form 1024-A, Application for Recognition of Exemption under Section 501(c)(4), to apply for recognition of exemption from federal income tax under section 501(c)(4). However, to have your tax-exempt status reinstated after your tax-exempt status was automatically revoked for failure to file a return or notice for 3 consecutive years, you must apply to have your tax-exempt status reinstated, even if you had not previously chosen to apply for recognition of exemption. .Submitting Form 1024-A does not satisfy your requirement to file Form 8976.. Requirements for Tax-Exempt Status Under Section 501(c)(4) To qualify for exemption under section 501(c)(4), no part of your net earnings can inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual. If you provide an excess benefit to certain persons, an excise tax may be imposed. Examples. Types of organizations that are considered to be social welfare organizations are civic associations and volunteer fire companies. Nonprofit operation. You must submit evidence that you are organized and will be operated on a nonprofit basis. However, such evidence, including the fact that you are organized under a state law relating to nonprofit corporations, won't in itself establish a social welfare purpose. Social welfare. To establish that you are operated primarily to promote social welfare, your application must show you will operate primarily to further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community, such as by bringing about civic betterment and social improvements. Examples. An organization that restricts the use of its facilities to employees of selected corporations and their guests is primarily benefiting a private group rather than the community. It therefore doesn't qualify as a section 501(c)(4) organization. Similarly, an organization formed to represent member-tenants of an apartment complex doesn't qualify, since its activities benefit the member-tenants and not all tenants in the community. However, an organization formed to promote the legal rights of all tenants in a particular community may qualify under section 501(c)(4) as a social welfare organization. Political activity. Promoting social welfare doesn't include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. However, if your application demonstrates you are organized primarily to promote social welfare, you can obtain exemption even if you participate legally in some political activity on behalf of or in opposition to candidates for public office. Social or recreational activity. If social activities will be your primary purpose, you shouldn't file an application for exemption as a social welfare organization. However, you may qualify for exemption as a social club described in section 501(c)(7). See Publication 557, Tax-Exempt Status for Your Organization. Retirement benefit program. An organization established by its members with its primary activity providing supplemental retirement benefits to its members or death benefits to their beneficiaries doesn't qualify as an exempt social welfare organization. It may qualify under another paragraph of section 501(c) depending on all the facts. However, a nonprofit association that is established, maintained, and funded by a local government to provide the only retirement benefits to a class of employees may qualify as a social welfare organization under section 501(c)(4). Tax treatment of donations. Contributions to civic leagues or other section 501(c)(4) organizations generally aren't deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. They may be deductible as trade or business expenses, if ordinary and necessary in the conduct of the taxpayer's business and not used for political or legislative activities. Donations to volunteer fire companies are deductible on the donor's federal income tax return, but only if made for exclusively public purposes. For more information on social welfare organizations, see Life Cycle of a Social Welfare Organization. Specific Organizations Volunteer fire companies and homeowners’ associations should include specific information in their applications to support their requests for recognition of exemption under section 501(c)(4). Volunteer fire companies. If you wish to obtain exemption as a volunteer fire company or similar organization, you should submit evidence that your members are actively engaged in firefighting and similar disaster assistance, whether you actually own the firefighting equipment, and whether you provide any assistance for your members, such as death and medical benefits in case of injury to them. If you don’t have an independent social purpose, such as providing recreational facilities for members, you may be exempt under section 501(c)(3). In this event, you may want to file Form 1023 or Form 1023-EZ, if eligible. Homeowners' associations. A membership organization formed by a real estate developer to own and maintain common green areas, streets, and sidewalks and to enforce covenants to preserve the appearance of the development should show that it is operated for the benefit of all the residents of the community. The term community generally refers to a geographical unit recognizable as a governmental subdivision, unit, or district thereof. Whether a particular association meets the requirement of benefiting a community depends on the facts and circumstances of each case. Even if an area represented by an association isn't a community, the association can still qualify for exemption if its activities benefit a community. The association should show that areas such as roadways and park land that it owns and maintains are open to the general public and not just its own members. It also must show that it doesn't engage in exterior maintenance of private homes. A homeowners' association that isn't exempt under section 501(c)(4) and that is a condominium management association, a residential real estate management association, or a timeshare association generally can elect under the provisions of section 528 to receive certain tax benefits that, in effect, permit it to exclude its exempt function income from its gross income. To elect these benefits, file a properly completed and timely filed (including extensions) Form 1120-H, U.S. Income Tax Return for Homeowners Associations, instead of Form 1024-A.

Proc. 2016-41, 2016-30 I.R.B. 165 at IRS.gov/irb/2016-30_IRB#RP-2016-41).

See Rev. Proc. 2014-11, 2014-03 I.R.B. 411 for details, including additional requirements for retroactive reinstatement. Requesting Expedited Review We generally review applications for exemption in the order we receive them. We only expedite processing of an application where a written request presents a compelling reason for processing the application ahead of others. This does not mean your application will be immediately approved or denied. Circumstances generally warranting expedited processing include the following. A grant to the applicant is pending, and the failure to secure the grant may have an adverse impact on the organization's ability to continue operations.

For purposes of completing this application, you’re formed under the laws of a foreign country if you aren't formed under the laws of the U.S., its territories and possessions, federally recognized Indian tribal or Alaska native governments, or the District of Columbia. 4 Bylaws are generally the internal rules and regulations of an organization. If you have bylaws, upload a current copy (including any amendments). Bylaws don't need to be signed unless they are your organizing document as described in the instructions for Line 1 above. Part III Part III, Line Part III. Your Activities REMINDER Answer all questions in this part as they pertain to your past, present, and planned activities. 1 Describe completely and in detail your past, present, and planned activities. Your narrative description of activities should be thorough and accurate because we determine whether you qualify for 501(c)(4) exempt status based on the information in your application. For each past, present, or planned activity, include information that answers the following questions: What is the activity? Who conducts the activity? What percentage of your total time is allocated to the activity? (Combined time percentages should add up to 100%) How is the activity funded (for example, donations, fees, etc.) and what percentage of your overall expenses is allocated to this activity? How does the activity further your exempt purposes? 2 National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities (NTEE) code. An NTEE code is a three-character series of letters and numbers that generally describe a type of organization. Enter the code from the list of NTEE codes, located in the Appendix A, that best describes you. For more information and more detailed definitions of these codes developed by the National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS), visit the Urban Institute, NCCS website at nccs.urban.org.TIP NTEE codes are also used for purposes other than identification of organizations described in section 501(c)(4). Therefore, all codes in the list don’t necessarily correspond to a section 501(c)(4) purpose. 3 Describe any money or time (whether volunteer or paid) you spent or will spend attempting to influence the selection, nomination, election, or appointment of any person to any federal, state, or local public office or to an office in a political organization. 4 If you (including any predecessor organization) lost your section 501(c)(3) status due to carrying on propaganda or otherwise attempting to influence legislation or due to participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office, then you will not be treated as an organization described in section 501(c)(4). This rule will not apply if you were a church or church-affiliated organization described in section 501(h)(5) in the tax year immediately preceding the tax year in which section 501(c)(3) status was lost. 5 You are a successor to another organization if you: Took or will take over activities previously conducted by another organization, Took or will take over 25% or more of the fair market value of the net assets of another organization, or Were established upon the conversion of an organization from for-profit to nonprofit status. 5a A for-profit organization is one in which persons are permitted to have an ownership or partnership interest, such as corporate stock. It includes sole proprietorships, corporations, and other entities that provide for ownership interests. 7 Indicate if you distribute, or plan to distribute, any of your property or funds (such as a distribution of profits) to your shareholders or members 8 A relationship between you and the recipient organization includes the following situations. You control the recipient organization, or it controls you through common officers, directors, or trustees, or through authority to approve budgets or expenditures. You and the recipient organization were created at approximately the same time and by the same persons. You and the recipient organization operate in a coordinated manner with respect to facilities, programs, employees, or other activities. Persons who exercise substantial influence over you also exercise substantial influence over the recipient organization. 8a Answer “Yes” if you make grants, loans, or other distributions (such as goods) to a foreign organization. 8e-g The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on U.S. foreign policy and national security goals against certain governments, entities, and individuals, as directed in Executive Orders. As part of the comprehensive and sustained campaign against terrorist financing, all U.S. persons, including U.S.-based charities, are prohibited from dealing with persons (individuals and entities) identified as being associated with terrorism on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (OFAC SDN List). Information about OFAC sanction programs and the OFAC SDN List are available at treasury.gov/ofac. 9 A foreign country is a country other than the U.S., its territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia. 9a-c The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on U.S. foreign policy and national security goals against certain governments, entities, and individuals, as directed in Executive Orders. As part of the comprehensive and sustained campaign against terrorist financing, all U.S. persons, including U.S.-based charities, are prohibited from dealing with persons (individuals and entities) identified as being associated with terrorism on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (OFAC SDN List). Information about OFAC sanction programs and the OFAC SDN List are available at treasury.gov/ofac. 10 Answer “Yes” if you are a membership organization formed to own and maintain common green areas, streets, and sidewalks and to enforce covenants to preserve the appearance of a development. 11 Answer “Yes” if your membership is limited to employees of a designated person or persons in a particular municipality and your net earnings will be devoted exclusively to charitable, educational, or recreational purposes. Part IV Part IV, Line Part IV. Compensation and Other Financial Arrangements 1 Answer “Yes” if you do or will pay compensation to your officers, directors, trustees, employees, members, or independent contractors. 1a A conflict of interest arises when a person in a position of authority over an organization, such as a director, officer, or manager, may benefit personally from a decision he or she could make. Adoption of a conflict of interest policy is not required to obtain tax-exempt status. However, by adopting a policy, you will be choosing to put in place procedures that will help you avoid the possibility that those in positions of authority may receive an inappropriate benefit. Reasonable compensation is the amount that would ordinarily be paid for like services by like organizations under like circumstances as of the date the compensation arrangement is made. Establishing and documenting reasonable compensation is important because excessive compensation may result in excise taxes on both the individual and you. In addition, excessive compensation may jeopardize your tax-exempt status. 1b A fixed payment means a payment that is either a set dollar amount or fixed through a specific formula where the amount doesn’t depend on discretion. For example, a base salary of $200,000 that is adjusted annually based on the increase in the Consumer Price Index is a fixed payment. A nonfixed payment means a payment that depends on discretion. For example, a bonus of up to $100,000 that is based on an evaluation of performance by the governing board is a nonfixed payment because the governing body has discretion over whether the bonus is paid and the amount of the bonus. 2 Don’t include purchases or sales of goods and services in your normal course of operations that are available to the general public under similar terms and conditions. Answer “Yes” if any of your officers, directors, or trustees: Is an officer, director, or trustee in another organization to which you will purchase or sell goods, services, or assets from or to; or Possesses more than 35% ownership interest in any organization to which you will purchase or sell goods, services, or assets from or to. An arm’s length standard exists where the parties have an adverse (or opposing) interest. For example, a seller wants to sell his goods at the highest possible price, while a buyer wants to buy at the lowest possible price. These are adverse interests. In negotiating with a person, an adverse interest is assumed if that person is otherwise unrelated to you in the sense of not being in a position to exercise substantial influence over you or your affairs. If the person is in a position to exercise substantial influence over your affairs, then an arm’s length standard requires additional precautions to eliminate the effect of the relationship. Using a conflict of interest policy, information about comparable transactions between unrelated parties, and reliable methods for evaluating the transaction, are examples of precautions that would help make the negotiation process equivalent to one between unrelated persons. Fair market value is the price at which property or the right to use property would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to buy, sell, or transfer property or the right to use property, and both having reasonable knowledge of relevant facts. 3 Answer “Yes” if any of your officers, directors, or trustees: Is an officer, director, or trustee in another organization that has a lease, contract, loan, or other agreement with you; or Possesses more than a 35% ownership interest in any organization that has a lease, contract, loan, or other agreement with you. For example, answer “Yes,” if one of your directors is an officer for a section 501(c)(3) organization with whom you have a lease for office space or if one of your directors owns more than 35% of the voting stock of a corporation to which you made a loan. 4 Indicate if you perform any services for any other organization or individual for which you receive a fee. 5 A joint venture is a legal agreement in which the persons jointly undertake a transaction for mutual profit. Generally, each person contributes assets and shares risks. Like a partnership, joint ventures can involve any type of business transaction and the persons involved can be individuals, groups of individuals, companies, or corporations. Part V Part V Part V.

See Pub. 598 for additional information regarding income that isn’t from an unrelated trade or business. Gross receipts also includes payment by a governmental unit that may be called a grant but is actually payment for a service or facility for the use of the government payer, rather than for the direct benefit of the public.Example. The state government gives a conservation group a grant to study the effects of a new sewage treatment plant on an ecologically significant woodland area. Although the payment is called a grant, it is actually gross receipts that should be included on Line 9. The payment is by a governmental unit (state) for a study for its own use, not for the direct benefit of the general public. A for-profit consulting company could have done the study rather than by the tax-exempt conservation group.
