The IRS requires a User Fee (application fee) of $600 for all tax exempt applications. The IRS fee is not included in any of the KNPUSA package prices. You will pay this fee directly to the IRS by check when your application is submitted.


Although these upfront fees can be substantial for some organizations, most of our clients recoup these expenses in a matter of weeks after receiving 501(c)(3) status through increased sponsorships, donations, and grant awards. All fees are one-time costs as there are no recurring annual fees. The above fees are subject to change. For current IRS Exempt Organization fees, please click here.
