Life Cycle of an Agricultural or Horticultural Organization

During its existence, a tax-exempt agricultural or horticultural organization has numerous interactions with the IRS – from filing an application for recognition of tax-exempt status, to filing the required annual information returns, to making changes in its mission and purpose. The IRS provides information, explanations, guides, forms and publications on all of these subjects – they are available through this IRS Web site. The illustration below provides an easy-to-use way of linking to the documents most organizations will need as they proceed though the phases of their “life cycle.” You can also view a graphical depiction [LINK] of the chart, with links to our website.
