On July 1, 2014, the IRS released a new Form 1023-EZ for small organizations to file for tax-exempt status. Effective for use immediately, instructions are posted on IRS.gov. Most small organizations with gross receipts of $50,000 or less and assets of $250,000 or less can use this new form. The IRS predicts that 70% of all applicants will be eligible.
