In Reply to: Can someone give me the nonprofit documents for the Fruit Festival? posted by Sally on August 29, 2014 at 11:48 am:

There are several reasons an organization may not
appear on GuideStar:
It is not registered with the IRS as an exempt
It is registered with the IRS under a different
name. This name may not be the more commonly used
name. For instance, FACES is the trade name of
Family and Community Education & Support, Inc.
Unless an organization has provided GuideStar with
its trade name, it will only come up under a search
for its official IRS name.
It is considered a religious entity and is not
required to file with the IRS for tax-exempt status.
It is a program for a larger organization and does
not have its own listing.
It is no longer recognized as an exempt
organization, having lost its exemption or gone out
of business.
It is a new organization whose listing has not been
entered in the database yet.
For additional information on if this organization
is listed separately, we recommend contacting this
organization directly and asking them for a copy of
their Letter of Determination (LOD) which is the
document the IRS issues to them upon approval of
their charitable status. You can also request this
public document by filling out government Form 4506-

If you believe that a nonprofit organization is
acting unlawfully or improperly there are
governmental authorities and consumer organizations
with which you can share this information.

For state governments, contact your state Attorney
General office.

For the federal government, the Internal Revenue
Service recommends that written complaints about the
activities or operations of tax-exempt organizations
that are inconsistent with their exemption should be
sent to:

Internal Revenue Service
Exempt Organizations Examination Division

1100 Commerce Street
Dallas, TX 75242

The IRS complaint should contain all relevant facts
concerning the alleged violation of tax law.

Another reporting resource available to you is the
Better Business Bureau. The Bureau offers an inquiry
and complaint filing procedure at:
