Exempt Organizations Examinations expects to publish in the Internal Revenue Bulletin ("IRB") public announcements concerning the previous revocation of exempt status for 77 organizations. These publications, to occur during December 2021 and January 2022, will resolve a backlog of the IRB public announcements referenced in Revenue Procedure 2018-32, 2018-23 I.R.B. 739.

These 77 organizations have previously been removed from the listings on Tax Exempt Organization Search(Pub. 78 Data) and the Exempt Organizations Business Master File (EO BMF) Extract on IRS.gov of organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions.
