Form 1023-EZ is a much more generalized version of the standard Form 1023 long form. Form 1023-EZ is a more streamlined method of filing designed for smaller nonprofits seeking 501(c)(3) status. Because this form is e-filed, the time it usually takes to get IRS approval is greatly decreased. The 1023-EZ does not require written budgets or narratives with the application.

Not all purposes or activities qualify for this process. In addition, on-going gross revenue is limited to under $50,000. For more information, see our Form 1023-EZ info page.
