The IRS charges a one time $400 or $850 User Fee to process your application.
Please check your questionnaires before you send them back to us. Once you send in a questionnaire and we process it, there are fees to re-enter information into our database and fees to reproduce documents due to your changes.
You should be able to complete all your questionnaires in one day. The Corporation Questionnaire will not normally take more than about 45 minutes. (Add another 20 minutes to read our introductory material.) The 501c3 Questionnaire will normally take two to four hours (attachments and financials will take longer, but you can do those while we are preparing your 501c3 documentation). Count on another hour or so if your organization is a church or school. Add more time if your nonprofit is very complex. You have two months to send us back your completed questionnaires. If you wish, you may extend this period for each questionnaire by paying $100 per month (extension fee).
