How to Research Tax-Exempt Organizations

The IRS makes it easy to check various organizations’ status to ensure that they are eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions. It provides a tool, Tax Exempt Organization Search, which allows users to research an organization quickly and easily, using information such as the organization’s name, Employee Identification Number, and location.

In addition to finding out whether an organization is eligible to receive tax-deductible donations, users also automatically can see whether any organizations’ tax-exempt status has been revoked (which happens if they don’t file their required Form 990-series for three years in a row), as well as access IRS determination letters that recognize the organization as tax-exempt, among other information.

What Are Alkaline Foods, and How Can They Benefit You?

Eating healthy foods and exercising are two of the main components of a healthy lifestyle, but maintaining a healthy pH level is another one. All foods are classified as acidic or alkaline, and knowing which ones are which can help you lose weight, reduce inflammation, and have more energy. Our kidneys are responsible for controlling our body’s pH levels, and focusing on an alkaline diet may help them do their job more efficiently.

Alkaline foods include legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and natural fats. An alkaline-based diet focuses more on these foods and less on processed foods, dairy, grains, and alcohol, all of which are acidic.

While there's still some debate over whether or not the alkaline diet is all it’s cracked up to be, you may enjoy more health benefits because the diet is rooted in eating whole, unprocessed foods.
