What are the IRS requirements when starting a nonprofit corporation?

The IRS does not require nonprofit corporations to apply for exemption from paying federal income taxes. However, those that want to obtain this exemption must file Form 1023 within 27 months of filing their articles of incorporation. Also, most nonprofits must file the informational tax report, Form 990, annually. More information can be found on the IRS website.
