It has been over 6 weeks since we claimed the Parent Teacher Counselor Org of the Indiana School for the Deaf profile on Guidestar and updated our profile.
Thank you for contacting the GuideStar Community.
Your organization has a foundation code of 17 in the IRS's Business Master File and 509a3 organizations are determined by foundation code. In the past, all 509a3 Organizations were given a foundation code of 17. A few years ago the IRS came out with more specific foundation codes, 21-24, see the chart below.
21 509(a)(3) Type I
22 509(a)(3) Type II
23 509(a)(3) Type III Functionally Integrated
24 509(a)(3) Type III Not Functionally Integrated
The IRS did not go back and reclassify all existing 17’s to the new codes so that is why your organization continues to appear with a foundation code of 17. Amazon is not displaying foundation codes 17 and 24. You will need to follow up with the IRS and ask them to update the foundation code from 17 to one of the new ones.
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 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern Time.
