A. Yes. Checking the Eligibility Checkbox at the top of Form 1023-EZ is supposed to mean the applicant organization is not applying for status as a church, a school or a hospital. Question 12 of the Eligibility Worksheet asks about churches, question 13 asks about schools, and question 14 asks about hospitals.
This question is new in the 1023-EZ dated January, 2018. Apparently, so many ineligible organizations were filing Form 1023-EZ that the IRS saw a need to duplicate the church, school and hospital questions.
Q. Doesn't the Eligibility Worksheet already
ask about churches, schools and hospitals?
