Via my favorite Boston Globe columnist comes news that the IRS has automatically revoked the federal tax-exempt status on certain non-profit groups “for failing to file an annual information return or notice with the IRS for three consecutive years.”
You can find a list of the Worcester- and Worcester-based non-profits whose statuses were revoked here. You may want to look at the complete list for Massachusetts, because some groups (like the Greater Worcester Humanists) have a “Worcester” name but do not use Worcester as their mailing address.
Some groups whose names jumped out at me are the Ladies’ AOH, the Lions and Kiwanis Clubs, North High Alumni Association, and Worcester Community Television — but it’s unclear whether the EINs are the correct ones for the groups I’m thinking of, or how many groups on the whole list are still active.
If you’re involved with any non-profits, take a look at the list and make sure yours isn’t on it!
