The IRS has published a list of tax-exempt organizations that have lost their tax exemption for failure to file information returns with the IRS for three straight years. The IRS has also published an automatic procedure (Rev. Proc. 2011-33) for such organizations to regain their exempt status.
The dozens of Central Iowa organizations that have lost their tax exemption according to the list include the local Chapter of the National Organization for Women, local chapters of AFL-CIO and AFSCME, and the Des Moines Mens Chorus. One organization that may be a bit red-faced at their revocation is the Internal Revenue Service Employees organization, with an address listed at PO Box 1337, Des Moines, 50305.
