Hi, I’m Res, and I work for the IRS. It’s just gotten a lot easier for small charities to become 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. That’s because of a new form called the 1023-EZ, which is shorter, simpler and quicker. It’s a couple pages long and it’s all online. There’s even a worksheet that will help you see if your organization is eligible to use the 1023-EZ. The EZ form helps us process your application quickly and efficiently, which means you’ll hear back from us sooner than ever before. For details, go to irs.gov/charities.
