Real Help With Your 501(c)(3) Application
Q. Does the IRS process Form 1023-EZ and Form 1023 in the same way?
Form 1023-EZ applicants will NOT receive a letter acknowledging receipt of the application.
Form 1023-EZ is reviewed by different IRS personnel, using different procedures. Those procedures are set forth in section 7.20.9 of the Internal Revenue Manual.
That said, there are many similarities in IRS processing of the two types of applications. Generally speaking, IRS procedures for requesting technical advice or §7805(b) relief, for appeals and conferences, disclosure, and declaratory judgments are all substantially the same.
