Charitable organizations have 24/7 access to online courses on Stay Exempt, an IRS website. The IRS created this site to help charities better understand tax issues that affect tax exempt organizations. It offers courses on a wide range of topics that can help these organizations obtain and maintain their tax-exempt status.

The online courses average less than 30 minutes. There is information to help guide an organization through the application process. They can also find courses that cover how to fully meet annual filing requirements. Aside from 501(c)(3)s, there are also courses geared to other 501 organizations, including veterans organizations, social clubs and fraternal organizations.

Some of the courses available include:
 

Applying for Section 501(c)(3) Status

Maintaining 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Status

Form 990 Overview Course

Good Governance Makes Sense for Exempt Organizations

Required Disclosures

Employment Issues

Getting and keeping tax-exempt status is important for the success of a charitable organization. Online courses on this site give directors, board members and volunteers access to tools and knowledge that will help them keep their organization’s exempt status.

Charities can find out more on the Tax Information for Charities and Other Non-Profits page on IRS.gov. For account questions, organizations can call the Tax Exempt and Government Entities toll-free line at 877-829-5500.

Remember that all of the web page addresses for the official IRS website, IRS.gov, begin with http://www.irs.gov. Don' t be confused or misled by Internet sites that end in .com, .net, .org or other designations instead of .gov. The address of the official IRS governmental Web site is http://www.irs.gov/.
