Survey to Small Tax-Exempt Organizations
November 13, 2012 - IRS Exempt Organizations has sent out a questionnaire to a sample of randomly selected tax-exempt organizations asking them to evaluate one of three different methods the IRS can use to provide tax information.
All are 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations with gross receipts of less than $200,000 and assets less than $500,000 that reported in Tax Year 2009 on Form 990 or Form 990-EZ. The sample also includes all tax-exempt organizations that filed Form 990-N (e-postcard) in Tax Year 2009.
The selected organizations review a sample outreach web page, then complete an online survey to evaluate the method's effectiveness.
The survey is the final phase of a research project that will help IRS Exempt Organizations understand where small organizations go for information about tax compliance; what information and guidance they want the IRS to develop and how they would like to receive the information.
Organizations that received a letter to participate and have questions can e-mail the IRS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
