The State Tax File

State tax file Publication 557 - Introductory Material Table of Contents What's New Reminders Introduction What's New Proposed regulations on “good faith determinations”. State tax file  Proposed regulations modify standards for making a good faith determination that a foreign organization is a charitable organization, grants to which may be qualifying distributions and not taxable expenditures. State tax file The proposed regulations identify a broader class of tax practitioners upon whose written advice a private foundation may base a “good faith determination. State tax file ” See, Proposed Regulations: Reliance Standards for Making Good Faith Determinations, REG-134974-12, 2012-47 I. State tax file R. State tax file B. State tax file 553. State tax file Prop. State tax file Regs. State tax file on Good Faith Determinations. State tax file New Requirements for section 501(c)(3) Hospitals Under the Affordable Care Act. State tax file  The Affordable Care Act (ACA), enacted March 23, 2010, added new requirements that hospital organizations must satisfy in order to be described in section 501(c)(3), as well as new reporting requirements and excise taxes. State tax file On June 22, 2012, the Service issued a notice of proposed rulemaking that addresses the new requirements enacted by the ACA applicable to section 501(c)(3) hospital organizations. State tax file See, Proposed Regulations: Additional Requirements for Charitable Hospitals, REG-13026-11, 77 Fed. State tax file Reg. State tax file 38148. State tax file On April 3, 2013, the Service issued proposed regulations on the ACA's community health needs assessment (CHNA) requirements. State tax file The proposed regulations also discuss the related reporting and excise tax requirements for charitable hospitals and the consequences for failure to satisfy the section 501(r) requirements. State tax file See, Proposed Regulations: Community Health Needs Assessments for Charitable Hospitals, REG-106499-12, 78 Fed. State tax file Reg. State tax file 20,523. State tax file Timing of when an Organization is exempt for Federal Tax Purposes. State tax file  As noted in section 2. State tax file 03(4) of Revenue Procedure 2013-9, 2013-2 I. State tax file R. State tax file B. State tax file 267, the provisions in section 11. State tax file 01 regarding the effect of determination letters or rulings recognizing exempt status of organizations described in section 501(c), other than sections 501(c)(3), (9), (17), and (29), have been revised. State tax file Prior to this year, and back to 1962, when such organizations applied for recognition, the IRS would usually recognize the organizations as tax exempt from the date of formation, no matter how long the interval between the date of formation and the date of application. State tax file In addition to the practical difficulties of ascertaining an organization's purposes and activities for this period, such recognition is now potentially inconsistent with the provisions of section 6033(j), which automatically revokes the exempt status of an organization that fails to file required Form 990 series returns or notices for three consecutive years. State tax file The new procedure adopts a practice similar to the rule for section 501(c)(3) organizations for these organizations, generally permitting recognition from the date of formation if the organization has: always met the requirements for exemption, has applied within 27 months from the end of the month in which it was organized, and has not failed to file required Form 990 series returns or notices for three consecutive years. State tax file Section 11. State tax file 01(3) notes: an organization that otherwise meets the requirements for tax-exempt status and the issuance of a determination letter or ruling that does not meet the requirements for recognition from date of formation will generally be recognized from the postmark date of its application. State tax file Exempt Organizations Select Check. State tax file  The IRS has developed an on-line search tool, Exempt Organizations Select Check, that allows users to select an exempt organization and check certain information about its federal tax status and filings. State tax file It consolidates three former search sites into one, providing expanded search capability and a more efficient way to search for organizations that: Are eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions (Publication 78 data). State tax file Users may rely on this list in determining deductibility of contributions, just as they did when Publication 78 was a separate electronic publication rather than part of Select Check. State tax file Have had their tax-exempt status automatically revoked under the law because they have not filed Form 990 series returns or notices annually as required for three consecutive years (Auto-Revocation List). State tax file Have filed a Form 990-N (e-Postcard) annual electronic notice. State tax file  In addition to searching for a particular organization, users may download a complete list of each of the three types of organizations through Exempt Organizations Select Check.
