Internal Revenue Service Form 1023 is entitled "Application for Recognition of Exemption Under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code," which is why most people call it simply "Form 1023." Most types of nonprofit organizations that fall within Section 501(c)(3) must submit Form 1023 within 27 months of their formation, along with a user fee that depends on the amount of revenue that the organization anticipates.
Last year the user fees for Form 1023's increased significantly. For 2011, they remain the same as in they were in 2010. The fees are:
- $400 for organizations with annual gross revenues less than $10,000
- $850 for organizations with annual gross revenues equal to or greater than $10,000
