    Today, over 70 percent of all tax-exempt organization returns other 
than Form 990-N and all Forms 990-N are prepared using software by the 
taxpayer or with preparer assistance.
    There are 56 forms used by tax-exempt organizations. These include 
Forms 990, 990-PF, 990-N, and 990-T, and related schedules tax-exempt 
organizations attach to their tax returns (see Appendix-A to this 
notice). In

addition, there are numerous regulations, notices and Treasury 
Decisions that are covered by the burden estimate provided in this 
notice. (See Appendix B for a list).

Taxpayer Burden Estimates

    Note:  These estimates are preliminary. They will be revised to 
incorporate a more comprehensive review of changes from legislative 
and regulatory changes since 2018 in the 30-day notice.

Proposed PRA Submission to OMB

    Title: Tax-Exempt Organization Tax Compliance Burden.
    OMB Number: 1545-0047.
    Form Numbers: Forms 990, 990-EZ, 990-PF, 990-N, 990-T and all 
attachments to these forms and related forms (see the Appendix-A to 
this notice).
    Abstract: OMB number 1545-0047 reports the estimated burden 
incurred by tax-exempt organizations to meet their tax-compliance-
related reporting requirements. The estimate is preliminary and 
reflects only the change in burden related to technical adjustments 
related to updating the number of affected taxpayers to reflect the 
FY2020 forecast.
    Affected Public: Tax-Exempt Organizations.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,548,500.
    Total Estimated Time: 50.1 million hours.
    Estimated Time per Respondent: 32.38 hours.
    Total Estimated Out-of-Pocket Costs: $1.30 billion.
    Estimated Out-of-Pocket Cost per Respondent: $841.
    Total Estimated Monetized Burden: $3.61 billion.
    Estimated Total Monetized Burden per Respondent: $2,331.

    Note:  Amounts below are for FY2020. Reported time and cost 
burdens are national averages and do not necessarily reflect a 
``typical'' case. Most taxpayers experience lower than average 
burden, with taxpayer burden varying considerably by taxpayer type. 
Detail may not add due to rounding.

    Note: The average burden for Forms 990, 990-PF, 990-N and 990-T 
will be separately stated in the 30-day notice for this FRN when the 
burden estimate is finalized.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not 
required to respond to, a collection of information unless the 
collection of information displays a valid OMB Control Number. Books 
or records relating to a collection of information must be retained 
as long as their contents may become material in the administration 
of any internal revenue law. Generally, tax returns and tax return 
information are confidential, as required by 26 U.S.C. 6103.

Request for Comments

    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will 
become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether 
the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance 
of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) 
ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates 
of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and 
purchase of services to provide information.
