Tax Exempt Status Statement
For the past 10 years, Shoes 4 the Shoeless has served our community and fulfilled a desperate and often overlooked need. We take great pride in the reputation that our organization has earned within our community. Part of that reputation is being forthright in the administrative, operational, and regulatory aspects of our mission.
We recently received a notice from the IRS that our tax-exempt status was automatically revoked effective May 15, 2020. This means we are not able to provide tax deductible status to our donors for their contributions received after this date. We are confident we have received this notice in error. Accordingly, we are diligently working with the IRS and outside advisors to rectify the error, and to have our tax-exempt status reinstated retroactively to May 15, 2020. While working to resolve this situation we will continue all operations in pursuit of meeting one of poverty’s biggest unmet needs.
