What information will be required on Form 1023?

In order for the IRS to make a determination on a standard Form 1023 application, specific questions must be answered relative to the organization’s legal structure, its governing board and potential conflicts of interest. More importantly, pages of detailed questions concerning the organization’s activities must be answered. This is in addition to a three-year projected budget (new organizations) or up to five years of financial history (existing organizations) and a written narrative essay outlining the organization’s programs, both current and planned, that will advance the organization’s exempt purpose. Add to that copies of supporting schedules and documentation and you have a basic application package.

The information requested on a Form 1023-EZ relates to more generalized questions of structure and compliance. No written budgets or narratives are required.
