GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in North Carolina has lost its status as a nonprofit.

According to documents, The IRS revoked the state NAACP of its nonprofit status in May 2022 after the organization did not file 990 tax forms showing exempt from income tax for three consecutive years. The announcement was made public in August.

The IRS website does state that just because an organization appears on its list, it does not mean it is currently revoked, as it may have been reinstated.

If NAACP NC does remain revoked, any donations leading up to elections are taxable and not deductible for donors.

The state NAACP has struggled for several months following accusations of misspending, and the death of its former president, Reverend Anthony Spearman, back in July.
