Tax Dictionary – Automatic Revocation
Most tax-exempt organizations other than churches and certain church-related organizations are required to file an annual information return or notice with the IRS.
Organizations that do not file for three consecutive years automatically lose their tax-exempt status. An automatic revocation is effective on the original filing due date of the third annual return or notice.

It is crucial for tax-exempt organizations to file the annual return as required. Once the IRS revokes tax-exempt status, there is no appeals process and the organization must file a tax return such as Form 1120 or 1041 until tax-exempt status is reinstated. The organization must reapply to obtain tax-exempt status. This will likely affect the organization at the state level as well.
