Q. Doesn't the Eligibility Worksheet already
ask about gross receipts and assets?
This website has only a fraction of the information you can find in
A. Yes. Checking the Eligibility Checkbox at the top of Form 1023-EZ is supposed to mean you have completed the Eligibility Worksheet that appears on page 13 of the Form 1023-EZ instructions. Gross receipts and assets are covered in Questions 1, 2, and 3 of the Eligibility Worksheet.
These questions are new in the 1023-EZ dated January, 2018 Form 1023-EZ. Apparently, so many ineligible organizations were filing Form 1023-EZ that the IRS saw a need to duplicate the gross receipts and assets questions.
