Amazon has teamed up with the IRS to give more ready access to nonprofits' Form 990s filed since 2011: the goal is to make those forms more readily available.
"The Internal Revenue Service opened a gusher of information on nonprofits Wednesday by making electronically filed Form 990s available in bulk and in a machine-friendly format.
"The material will be available through the Public Data Sets area of Amazon Web Services. It will also include information from digital versions of the 990-EZ form filed by smaller nonprofits and form 990-PFs filed by private foundations."--Peter Olsen-Phillips, The Chronicle of Philanthropy
