Instructions for IRS Form 1023 – User Fee Information 2023

How much does the IRS Form 1023 cost in 2023?

If you’ve made it this far, you should be proud of yourself and get ready for a vacation. We have one last section and you are done. The last section is the Form 1023 user fees.

As of 2023, the user fee for an organization filing the IRS Form 1023 is $600.

The user fee for Form 1023-EZ is $275, but if you’re basing your decision on the filing fee of the two different form 1023 applications, you should first read the page where I explain the qualifications for the form 1023EZ first.

The fee for the Form 1023 (ez and long version) must be paid through when the application is filed. Checks and money orders are not accepted anymore by the IRS.

Payment can be made directly from your nonprofit organization’s bank account or by credit/debit card. These figures are subject to change so make sure to call the IRS to find out their latest User Fees.
