IMPORTANT: The IRS has specific filing time frames and language expectations for obtaining tax exempt status from the IRS. For more information you are strongly encouraged to visit the IRS websites.
The State of Alaska Corporations Section strongly encourages you to visit the IRS websites before proceeding:
The IRS provides specialized assistance to tax-exempt organizations, call 877-829-5500 (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time. Residents of Alaska follow Pacific time.)
