On January 2nd, IRS released Revenue Procedure 2014-11 which completely changed the playing field by which automatically revoked exempt organizations can not only be reinstated (requiring a new exemption application), but have that reinstatement apply retroactively back to the date of revocation.  This new Rev. Proc. provides factors by which an organization will be considered to have reasonable cause for their underlying failure to file Forms 990/990-EZ or the 990-N notice for three consecutive years and thus qualify for retroactive reinstatement.  Many organizations’ circumstances fall squarely within such factors, but the Revenue Procedure now covers circumstances that had NOT been considered by the IRS to comprise reasonable cause in the past (for example, a history of compliance with other annual filing requirements – such as the Form 990-T, or longstanding filing of Forms 990/990-EZ under an incorrect taxpayer ID number).

This will be the first topic of the Business Law Section’s Nonprofit Corporations Committee brown bag lunch series.  We will meet at the MSBA offices on Wednesday February 18 at Noon (bring your own lunch).  Eve Borenstein will walk us through the newly released IRS procedures related to revocation of tax exempt status.

At the end of the lunch, the group will brainstorm on topics for future lunch discussion groups.

This is a brown-bag lunch.  Water and soft drinks will be provided.
