Grab a Snickers Bar and keep waiting…

Many organizations have been complaining of backlog and lack of response from the I.R.S. for months after sending in its application. Before calling your accountant or attorney who filed it, keep in mind the following fact:

All applications from the entire country are sent to the I.R.S.’s office here in Cincinnati. The office receives 70,000 applications each year and the Cincinnati office has fewer than 200 people working on those applications. That means if each worker spends each day completing one tax-exempt application, it will take the office a year and a half to get to your organization’s application.
