Journalism nonprofit San Diego Newsroom had to wait over 2 years for tax-exemption ruling from IRS, and the journey was excruciating.
"My local news site, San Diego Newsroom, endured a 26-month 501(c)(3) application process with the Internal Revenue Service. Throughout this delay the IRS appeared to be writing new rules as it went along, altered its explanation for the holdup, misrepresented facts, made unreasonable requests, refused to provide any estimate of a decision date and stonewalled us in other ways." -- Steve King, Forbes.com
