Revocation of Federal Tax Exemption

Congress passed the Pension Protection Act in 2006, requiring most tax-exempt organizations to file an annual information return or notice with the IRS. The Internal Revenue Service today released a listing of approximately 275,000 organizations that under the law have automatically lost their tax-exempt status because they have not filed as legally required for the past three years. View the IRS Website for more information.
