Data Quality or Limitations

Financial fields are provided by the IRS and are subject to verification. Only fields provided in each year of the NCCS Core files are included. NCCS recommends users exclude all cases which are flagged "Out" on the field "OUTNCCS," as these represent organizations deemed out of scope by NCCS. Information is organized by EIN and fiscal year. Information is intended for longitudinal analysis by organization. For measures of the nonprofit sector within a given year, NCCS recommends using the individual NCCS Core File for that given year.

Usage Limitations

Contains information for all tax exempt organizations filing a Form 990 or 990-EZ for all available years. Note that this will exclude organizations falling below the minimum filing threshold for the Form 990-EZ (<$50,000 in gross receipts from 2010 to present, <25,000 in prior years), as well as organizations not required to register with the IRS (organizations with <$5,000 in gross receipts, and religious congregations). Consequently, not all years of financial information will be included for all organizations.
