Extension Procedures Have Changed

Extension Requests Are No Longer Required in Washington State!

Eligible organizations automatically receive a six and a half month extension.

Due to an extremely high volume of extension requests, organizations are no longer required to submit an extension request to the Washington State Charities and Trust Programs.

Organizations that have met annual registration requirements with the Charities and Trust Programs are eligible to receive an automatic six and a half month extension. Upon the completion of each successful renewal, the organization will receive written confirmation, including the organizations “extended” renewal date.

Although Washington State has amended its extension procedures, please recognize that this does not eliminate the need to follow established extension request procedures with the Internal Revenue Service or other states.

If you have questions or need additional information, contact the Charities Program at [email protected] or call 360-725-0378.
