How to get reinstate as 501(c)3 Classification, lost in 2000-2002 due to no filing.
HelloCustomer
You stated that you tried the irs.gov site first. You may have missed this information on how to be reinstated as a 501(c)3; "Can an organization have its tax-exempt status reinstated if it was revoked for failing to file for three consecutive years?

Yes, but you must apply (or reapply) and pay the appropriate user fee to have your tax-exempt status reinstated if it was revoked because you failed to file for three consecutive years. An exemption application is required even if your organization was not originally required to file an application. Reinstatement of tax-exempt status may be retroactive if you can show that you had reasonable cause for not filing. To apply for tax-exempt status, use Form 1023, Application for Recognition of Exemption, (if you are a section 501(c)(3) public charity) or Form 1024, Application for Exemption under Section 501(a) (for other types of tax-exempt organizations)."

The reinstatement of the organization is dependent on the IRS.

I hope this information is helpful,
