In 2006 Congress passed the Pension Protection Act requiring most tax-exempt organizations to file an annual information return or notice with the IRS. This week, the Internal Revenue Service released a listing of approximately 275,000 organizations that under the law have automatically lost their tax-exempt status because they have not filed as legally required for the past three years.
