IRS’s Information on Exempt Charitable Organizations

The IRS recently launched a new online search tool entitled “Exempt Organizations Select Check.” This search tool can be found at and allows users to search for:

1. Organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions.
2. Organizations whose federal tax exemption has been automatically revoked for not filing a Form 990-series return for three consecutive years.
3. Form 990-N (e-postcard) filers that are small charities whose annual gross receipts are normally $50,000 or less.

A search for eligible organizations may now be done by Employer Identification Number (EIN). The Auto-Revocation List (#2) may be searched by EIN, name, city, state, ZIP code, country, and revocation posting date. Information is updated monthly.
