Tax Exempt Organization Returns Online and Easily Searchable

In November, we posted about the IRS’s digital release of 10 years’ worth of tax-exempt organization returns, which contained more than 6.5 million documents.

ProPublica, a news organization that “produces investigative journalism in the public interest,” has now launched an easy-to-use search engine for these returns. You can search by keyword, state, non-profit category, and organization type (e.g., 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4))

For example, if you’re interested in the current IRS controversy, searching on “Tea Party”, “constitution”, or “patriot” will pull up information on numerious 501(c)(4) orgainizations and links to pdf scans of their Form 990 returns.
