Form 1023 - Part XI

​​As described on this page, the information below refers to an earlier version of Form 1023.

Page 12 - Part XI - User Fee Information

The Internal Revenue Service has charged a non-refundable processing fee for exemption applications since 1987.  With the Form 1023 dated December, 2018, the IRS has abandoned the two-tier fee schedule they have used since 2004.  The fee is now $600 for all organizations that file Form 1023.

Some experts feel your application will be handled more promptly if you pay the User Fee with a cashier's check or money order. Others disagree. If you pay with a personal check, watch your bank statements carefully to make sure the IRS does, in fact, cash your check for the User Fee. If they don't, your application may have gotten lost in the mail.
