You’ve Got Mail

Here's a copy of the letter we received from the IRS notifying us that they had received our Form 1023 application.

Here's a copy of the June 26, 2009 letter we received from the IRS notifying us that they had received our Form 1023 application.

Not yet.

Not the mail I’m waiting for.

I go to the post office box each day, looking for a letter from the IRS heralding their approval of our request for tax exempt status for Isis Initiative, Inc.. We received our first letter from them on June 26, 2009, stating that they had received our application for 501(c)(3) status. The letter also said that we could expect a notification within approximately 60 days, if our application fell into one of two categories that allowed it to be processed quickly.

The letter also stated that if our application requires additional development, i.e. third category, we’d be assigned to an Exempt Organizations specialist. Much as I appreciate the assistance of a specialist, I’d prefer that our application fall into category one or two. There’s a back log of more than eight months for applications in category three.

Isis Initiative, Inc. is a small, home-grown, grass-roots nonprofit with big dreams…and thus far, a small budget. I believe we’ll get that approval letter any day now.

Join me and keep hope alive.
