NCCS Enhanced Extract of IRS Financial Data, 2012

NCCS is offering newly-released financial data from the Internal Revenue Service for public charities, private foundations, and other types of tax-exempt 501(c) organizations filing Forms 990, 990EZ, and 990PF. The data are provided through the IRS's Statistics of Income Division (SOI) and represent annual informational returns that were filed and processed by the IRS during calendar year 2012.

These files combine the raw data provided by the IRS with organization name and address information, NCCS summary National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities (NTEE) activity codes (NTEE), and other fields likely to be of interest to users from the SOI Exempt Organizations Business Master File Extract (BMF). Learn more about NCCS's NTEE classification codes, its series of historical files, supplemental data and other data, tools and resources at

Form Type
I acknowledge reading the NOTE below.

Although these files are free, our work at NCCS is not. The classifications, for example, represent an investment of many years of effort. In order to better document use of our data, which helps us raise the funds we need to continue our work, we require that you register and log in first. Thank you!

IMPORTANT NOTE!!! The financial and BMF data are provided 'as is' from the IRS and have NOT been verified by NCCS. NCCS will publish an updated and cleaned version of these data in its NCCS Core 2011 Files in May, 2013. (Inconsistencies or errors within returns and between consecutive years are flagged and the largest of the errors are manually reviewed and fixed if necessary.)

These data are created for administrative purposes by the IRS and have NOT been reviewed for discrepancies in the data (e.g. errors, omissions, or inconsistencies). The Urban Institute shall not be held liable for any such discrepancies. Please review the NCCS Data Guide for a discussion of the limitations of the data. Please contact with any comments or corrections.
