|Aug 9, 2016||New Regulations to Notify the IRS of Intent to Operate Under Sec. 501(c)(4)|
Generally, 501(c)(4) organizations are not required to file Form 1024 to seek tax-exempt status; they may “self-declare”. As a result, until a self-declared 501(c)(4) filed a Form 990, the IRS had no record of its existence. The Protecting Americans From Tax Increases (PATH) Act of 2015 added Section 506 to the Internal Revenue Code. This new provision requires an organization described in Section 501(c)(4) to notify the IRS within 60 days of formation of its intent to operate as such. Recently, the IRS issued regulations, effective on July 8, 2016, along with Revenue Procedure 2016-41. Together these documents provide clear instructions on the manner in which to notify the IRS that an organization is operating as a 501(c)(4) organization.
