How do I go about changing our organizations NTEE code through the IRS?
Good Morning Johnny,
Thank you for contacting the GuideStar Community.
Our search engine uses the NTEE (National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities) Classification System developed by the National Center for Charitable Statistics as part of its keyword searching criteria. You can add additional, more relevant codes to your GuideStar profile using the “Categorization” section of the GuideStar Nonprofit Profile. Choosing a good, representative NTEE code will help your organization be found more easily by users searching our database. For example, an organization that is coded C27 will come up when someone searches on the keyword "recycling."
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.
Hope this helps. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
