We recommend you contact the IRS to find out what you need to do to get your organization back on the IRS Business Master File. You may contact the Nonprofit Division of the IRS for more information at: (877) 829-5500 (toll-free number). The IRS call center is open 8:00am to 5:00pm Eastern Time. Once your organization reappears on the IRS Business Master File we will receive the update from the IRS, or you can send us your updated Letter of Determination and we would be happy to manually list your organization.
