In June, the IRS announced they revoked the tax exemptions for 275,000 nonprofits or about 18 percent of the country’s tax exempt organizations. Ohio had 10,646 nonprofit licenses revoked. Of those, 6,381 were 501(c)(3)s.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine encourages charitable donors to educate themselves to ensure intended donations are indeed tax deductible.
