Art Advisory Panel of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, 18125 [2014-07154]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 61 / Monday, March 31, 2014 / Notices Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 80,000. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 6,936,420. Reason for Change: The Internal Revenue Service is introducing an ‘‘EZ’’ version of the Form 1023 as an alternative in applying for recognition of exemption from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3). The Form 1023–EZ is a shorter, less burdensome version of the 25-page Form 1023, which may be used if an organization meets specific criteria, as identified in the instructions. There is an overall increase in the estimated annual burden hours requested due to an increase in the number of respondents, as well as changes to the Form 1023 (as described in IRS Notice 1382). It is estimated that approximately 17 percent of the 80,000 respondents will apply using Form 1023–EZ, which will take 14 hours to complete (compared to 101 hours for the Form 1023). Dawn D.
