National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities Classification

Here is the National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities Classification (NTEE-CC Codes) that are used to classify charities by the IRS and the National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS). NCCS was developed in the 1980’s. The IRS has since adopted the NTEE-CC Codes for use in clarifying charities on Form 1023 and Form 1024, which are the forms that charities fill out to apply for recognition of tax-exempt status.
