Format for Upcoming Non-filer Automatic Revocation List

Most tax-exempt organizations, other than churches, must file a yearly return or notice with the IRS. If an organization does not file as required for three consecutive years, the law provides that it automatically loses its tax-exempt status. Loss of exempt status means an organization must file income tax returns and pay income tax, and its contributors will not be able to deduct their donations.
The IRS will soon publish and begin maintaining a list, updated monthly, of organizations that have had their federal tax-exempt status revoked. The Nonfiler Revocation List will be available in two formats, Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Excel. The list will be divided into separate lists for each state, the District of Columbia, and all other territories and countries. The list will provide, for each revoked organization, the name, Employer Identification Number (EIN), organization type (subsection code), last known address provided to the IRS by the organization, and the effective date of revocation. The effective date of revocation is the original filing due date, without regard to extensions, of the third annual required return or notice that was not filed.
In addition, a single list of all revoked organizations on the Nonfiler Revocation List will be available in ASCII delimited text format.

National Sous Directeur Public Relations Area IV


As a National Sous Directeur, I know what it takes to get the message out on the Veterans best kept secret pertaining to without a doubt the greatest fraternal Veterans organization on the face of this earth.

We need to develop a plan on getting the word out. Here are a few suggestions on this matter.



Send out mailings to the local newspapers, radio stations, or even check on a opportunity to speak on the area radio stations about all the good work we do in the community as Voyageurs.


Develop flyers about our organization and hang them is places of business, Veterans Clubhouses, grocery stores, taverns (if you’re from Wisconsin) even churches. Use your own ideas where to do this.


Our organization will die unless it grows. Commit yourself to asking a Veteran to join our ranks every week. You may only get one positive answer out of ten; but if every Voyageur does this then we will grow in leaps and bounds.


Take it any way you want, but when we took the oath as new Voyageurs, we all wanted to see this great organization grow not only in membership, but also in all of our programs. Voyageurs, we can make a difference not only in turning our Locales and Grande Voitures into organizations that all Veterans want to be an active part of, but also into a family orientated organization. One where the family would want to attend the State and National functions.


As a member of La Societe for almost 35 years now, I know first hand what fun we have a tight knit fraternal volunteer Veterans organization. The comraderarie

We show to our fellow Voyageur is second to none. Promenades are always a great time to fine someone 10 cents for screwing up the terminology, having their picture in the paper (publicity hound) having their chapeau on backwards or just about anything. All in good fun! But we do get the work done.
