IRS Taking Longer to Review 501c3 Applications / Form 1023

The last few months we’ve noticed a significant increase in the amount of time that the IRS is taking to review and approve applications for 501c tax exemption. During the first six months of 2012, our clients were receiving their Letters of Determination on average within 3-5 months.  More recently, a number of our clients are well into their fifth and sixth month of waiting.  Since there is no effective way to expedite the process, we encourage you to plan accordingly and to contact us if you have questions.

  1. To Whom it Concerns,

    Do you have to be a US citizen to obtain a 501c3 status? I appreciate a rapid response.

    Thank you,

    Sandra Blacet

    • Hello Sandra,
