The Internal Revenue Service has launched an online search tool, Exempt Organizations Select Check to help users obtain information about tax-exempt organizations. This includes determining federal tax status and filings by visiting

Among information that can be found is whether a tax-exempt organizations has had its federal tax exemption automatically revoked under the law for not filing a Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years (known as the Auto-Revocation List). Other items include if an organization has filed a Form 990-N

Improve search functions also enable users to look for organizations eligible to receive deductible contributions by Employer Identification Number (EIN), which was previously not a searchable or sortable field in the electronic Publication 78. Meanwhile, data about organizations eligible to receive deductible contributions are being updated monthly, rather than quarterly.

Organizations that  have automatically lost their tax exemptions may now be searched by EIN, name, city, state, ZIP Code, country, exemption type, and revocation posting date, rather than only by state. EO Select Check also provides pop-up help text to assist users in understanding the significance of auto-revocation search results, including the meaning of, and distinctions between, revocation dates and revocation posting dates.
