The most common reason that 501c3 status gets revoked is not filing the proper 990 form on time for 3 consecutive years.
Regain Your Nonprofit Status
Losing your IRS tax-exempt status can have a major impact on your operations as a nonprofit organization. Without an active 501c3 status, you won’t be able to apply for grants or guarantee tax-deductible donations for your donors. Pursuing reinstatement doesn’t have to be difficult when you’ve got Charitable Allies’ nonprofit attorneys on your side.

Frequently Asked Questions
A reasonable cause statement is a part of restoring your 501c3 status if it’s been more than 15 months since your revocation. It establishes that an organization had reasonable cause for its failure to file an annual return for at least 1 of the 3 consecutive years where it failed to file.
Post-Mark Date Reinstatement is the only 501c3 reinstatement option that is not retroactive. This means that any donations made while your status was revoked are not tax deductible.
