Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. The IRS automatically revoked 501c3 status if a company misses 3 consecutive tax filings. If the automatic revocation was proper there is no way to appeal the revocation. In your case, it is not possible for the entity to have missed 3 tax filings. I would appeal the revocation based on this fact.

I have heard of the automatic revocation but not if you have been in existence for less than 3 years. I would prepare the outstanding returns and appeal the revocation based on the fact that you have not been in existence for three years.
