The IRS has updated its procedures for contacting entities that are seeking exempt status. The Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division issued a memo with new procedures that apply. For example, if an organization doesn’t submit a Form 2848, “Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative,” with its application for recognition of tax-exempt status or during case processing, the IRS will contact the primary contact person listed on the application. An IRS employee will discuss issues in the application, request additional information and discuss determinations for a “potentially adverse case.” To read the full memo: Call or visit our website for more information!
