RE: Talking points for meeting with Rep. Jordan today
Below the statement TEGE provided. have confirmed that the statement was received Congressman Jordans staff
last night 5:05 pm.
Eric
Upon receipt, exemption applications accompanied the required user fee are initially separated into four categories:
(1) those that can approved immediately based the information submitted, (2) those that need minor additional
information resolved, (3) those that are submitted obsolete forms not include the items specified the
Procedural Checklist (at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs -tege/f1023_procedural_checklist_0606.pdf), and (4) those that
require development. application lls within one the first three categories, the applicant will receive either its determination letter
request for additional information, via phone, fax, letter, within approximately days the date the application
was submitted.
Applications falling within the fourth category must assigned agent for further development. Due staffing
levels, applications falling into this category cannot always immediately assigned These applications can experience
some wait time befo assignment agent. The number applications awaiting assignment agents has
increased due, part, the influx applications from large organizations seeking have their exempt status
retroactively reinstated after being automatica lly revoked pursuant the Pension Protection Act 2006 for failure
file annual information returns/notices for three consecutive years.
Once case assigned agent, the agent must consider the type organization and the rules applicabl that
type organization. Because exemption from federal income tax valuable subsidy, the Internal Revenue Code and
accompanying Treasury Regulations impose detailed requirements for qualification for exemption various types
entities. agents often have ask the applicant organizations questions and ask for related documents determine
whether they satisfy these requirements.
For example, under the Code, organizations exempt under section 501(c)(3) (what commonly refer charities)
are absolutely forbidden from intervening political campaigns. contrast, organizations exempt under sections
501(c)(4), 501(c)(5) and 501(c)(6) can intervene political campaigns within limits. thus important that agents
look the materials used and activities conducted organizations seeking exemption under sections 501(c)(4),
501(c)(5) and 501(c)(6) make sure campaign intervention will within the legal limits. This review often involves
back and forth question answer process between the IRS and the applicant.
