The Internal Revenue Service has introduced a new online service that can provide additional information about tax-exempt organizations.
According to IR-2018-116, the new Tax Exempt Organization Search (TEOS) replaces EO Select Check (a more limited service available since 2012) and makes images of newly-filed Forms 990, 990-EZ, 990-PF, and 990-T available on-line, as well as determination letters. TEOS also allows access to more types of information, allows searches across multiple data files, and is designed to be “mobile friendly” and allow searches through smartphones or tablets.
Initially, only 990 series forms filed in January and February 2018 along with a limited number of determination letters will be available. New Form 990 filings will be added monthly, and eventually determination letters issues since January 2014 will be added.
