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).
