Dozens of St. Lawrence County non-profit organizations in jeopardy of losing tax-exempt status
Monday, August 9, 2010 - 2:39 pm

Dozens of organizations in St. Lawrence County could lose their tax-exempt status, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

The IRS has released a list of organizations that have failed to file required tax forms three years in a row, which will automatically cause them to lose their tax-exempt status.

However, the IRS is providing a one-time relief opportunity for those organizations to help them avoid having to reapply to seek non-profit status.

More information is available at http://www.irs.gov/charities/article/0,,id=225889,00.html.
