From Time To Time The IRS Does Revoke A Group's Nonprofit Status

As we've previously noted, every 10 - 15 minutes a new charity is established in the US. This is a problem because the amount of money available to charities isn't increasing at the same rate.

That said, the IRS does have the power to suspend or revoke an organization's tax-exempt status. And on occasion it does use that power. In fact, the IRS publishes that information in the IRS Bulletin. So far, in 2010, the following groups have had their nonprofit status revoked:

  • Remembrance Foundation of Alpine, UT
  • Lund Family Foundation of Ogden, UT
  • American Debt Solutions, Inc., of Boca Raton, FL
  • Equity Funding Corporation of W Des Moines, IA
  • Main Street Foundation, Inc., of Lawrenceville, GA
  • Coinmach Disaster Relief Fund Trust of Plainview, NY
  • Five Rivers Community Development Corporation of Georgetown, SC
  • Interfaith Adopt-A-Building of New York, NY
  • Jeffrey and Sara Brunken Family FDN of Salt Lake City, UT
  • Newton County Community Center, Inc., of Covington, GA
  • The Hemp & Cannabis Foundation of Portland, OR
  • Nuestra Sra De La Ribida-USA Auxiliary Service, Inc., of Tamarac, FL
  • Call of the Wild Sportsmen, Inc., of Mt Airy, MD

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
