Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you today.
Form 8821 is authorizes any individual, corporation, firm, organization, or partnership you designate to inspect and/or receive your confidential information for the type of tax and the years or periods listed on the form. You do not need this form when applying for tax exempt status.
Form 5768 is used to elect/revoke an election made by a 501(c)(3) organization to make expenditures to influence legislation. Unless your 501(c)(3) will be making such expenditures, this form is not needed when applying for tax exempt status.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Thank you and best regards,
Barb
