Transitional Procedures for Type III Supporting Organizations Failing Responsiveness Test
The IRS has issued transitional relief and filing procedures for certain charitable trusts that fail the responsiveness test for Type III supporting organizations. The procedures are intended for charitable trusts that received a determination recognizing their tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) and that met the requirements of section 509(a)(3) until August 17, 2007, and non-exempt charitable trusts described in section 4947(a)(1), that are treated for certain purposes as organizations described in section 501(c)(3), and that met the requirements of section 509(a)(3) until August 17, 2007.
