New IRS Search Tool: Select Check

The IRS recently launched a new online search tool for information about charitable organizations. Exempt Organizations Select Check allows a user to:

  1. search IRS “Publication 78″ data to determine if an organization is charitable
  2. determine if an organization has filed a Form 990-N (required for smaller charities)
  3. identify if an organization has had its tax-exempt status automatically revoked because it has not filed its Form 990 for three consecutive years.

This new search portal also allows grantmakers to search organizations by a number of categories.
