Online tool simplifies exempt organizations search

The IRS has launched a new online search tool - Exempt Organizations Select Check - to help users more easily find information about tax-exempt organizations.

You can now go to one location on to search for the following information:

Organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions, formerly listed in electronic Publication 78. You may rely on this list in determining deductibility of contributions, just as with Publication 78.

  • Organizations whose federal tax exemption was automatically revoked for not filing a Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years (Auto-Revocation List).
  • Form 990-N (e-Postcard) filers and their submissions.

EO Select Check offers improved search options. You can now look for organizations eligible to receive deductible charitable organizations (Publication 78 data) by employer identification number (EIN), which wasn't possible previously. And this data is now updated monthly instead of quarterly.

In addition, the list of organizations whose exemption was revoked - the Auto-Revocation List - may now be searched by EIN, name, city, state, ZIP code, country, exemption type and revocation posting date, rather than only by state.

The EO Select Check site also contains search tips that offer suggestions on how to use the search application.
