Technical Note on the Data
The data on this site has been extracted from the national IRS Exempt Organizations Business Master File using the NCCS Table Wizard. These provide public access to the information reported to the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by nonprofit organizations in their annual tax returns (Form 990 or equivalent). The accuracy of data depends on the accuracy of reporting to the IRS and on the accuracy of the machine-read extraction and publication. The data can be considered a good indicator of the size, location and work of New York nonprofits, but not a 100% accurate documentation.
