On January 2, a policy change was released by the IRS that seemed to eliminate expedited processing for 501(c)(3) exemption applications. Today the IRS confirmed that this was INCORRECT. Indeed, expedited handling for exempt organization applications is still available.
If your organization has a pending grant that it will lose without recognition of exemption or it is being set up to provide disaster relief to victims of emergencies, it can apply to be reviewed before other applications.
